INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Common Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus)
Location: warm and temperate tropical oceans worldwide
Size: 2 - 4 metres long weight: 150 650 kg
Diet: fish, cephalopod, crustacean
Conservation status: Least Concern
Interesting facts: dolphin is a mammal, not a fish! Baby dolphins always drink mother milk | dolphins have bigger brains, than humans | dolphins usually live in groups | dolphin is one of few animals, who kill not only for food! Dolphins are well-known for killing porpoises, their smaller "cousins". Male dolphins are also known to rape the females. Male dolphins even kill baby dolphins to make their mothers want to mate again. Dolphins are not that cute and nice animals, as many people think. They have no problem to kill a shark and they sometime annoy or sexually harass swimmers in the sea | dolphins use very effective echolocation to search for prey | dolphins are time to time found washed ashore, too often dying nobody knows, why this happens.
Relationship with humans: people keep dolphins in aquariums and dolphinarius, where the animals perform special tricks dolphins very easily learn those tricks | there are scientific researches about dolphins, which usually prove their high inteligence | dolphins appear in many human legends | some dolphins help people to hunt fish throught whole generations of both, people and dolphins | US army uses dolphins, teaching them to find mines and so on... | in some parts of the world, wild dolphins come from their own will to interact with people

Wow, this makes it look as if the dolphin can really fly! :wow: Such a cool shot! :eager:

p.s. Here's a fact you can add to the list (I learned at Six Flags: Discovery Kingdom): Dolphins have to think consciously about breathing. They have to think to breathe. That's why dolphins have to bring the young up to the surface so it remembers to breathe. Another cool fact (also learned at Discovery Kingdom): Dolphins sleep with only half their brain at any time. They usually only sleep for a few minutes, then wake up, then go back to sleep with the other side of their brain. Thought you'd like to know! :D

I didn't know they hunted for sport! :o And male dolphins are assholes.

I think hanging around with dolphins is the closest we can get to having real communication with intelligent life. :3
