Dolphins

Dolphins Dolphins are playful and cleverness make them fascinating to watch . Dolphins are not fish they are mammals that live in the sea . They have to come to the top of the water every half minute , so they can breathe . But dolphins can stay under the water for six or seven minutes ,if he holds his breath . The dolphin breathes in his head because he has a blow hole in his head that allows him to breathe .

Dolphins have a lot of teeth to help them eat. Each dolphin has almost one hundred teeth in his mouth all the same size and shape . The only work the teeths have is catching food , but not chewing it. First the dolphin catches a fish then he swallows it . A dolphin has a good eye .

But sometimes he can’t see very well in the water because is so full of shadows , and mud , and plantsthat grow at he bottom . The dolphin uses his ears so much it is hard to see his hears . They are located in the sides of his heads and are two tiny pin holes . The dolphin can hear very well . A dolphin sleeps a foot or two below the top of the water . He takes little naps every half minute or so he moves his tail up and down .This brings him up for a breath of air .

Then he drifts down and sleeps some more . Some dolphins stay together they play and learn and grow up . One reason they stay together is the enemies in the sea . The Shark is their enemy and so is the Killer Whale .If a killer whale comes close , the dolphins make a circle . The female dolphins and their babies are in the middle of the circle .

The male dolphins swim around the outside of the cicle . It is hard to attack when there is a bunch of dolphins . But sometimes the enemy attacks and the dolphins attack back . When a dolphin cries for help the other dolphin comes to help . One day some dolphins were playing around a big boat they did flips in the water and jumped high in the air . But one dolphin was jumping too high and was to close to a boat .

That fell against the hard side of the boat and was hurt . Then the dolphins heard the whistle for help they swam over their hurt friend . But was sinking in the water that the two friends started to push him up for a breathe air . Then he took a big breath of air and he swam away with his friends .That shows that the Dolphins stay together and are friendly . Dolphins are among the most playful of all animals , even as adults .They play with each other , with whatever the may find , and with the fish they are about to eat . They even like to play with people , wich maybe people enjoy dolphins so much .

Dolphins learn humans games quickly , and they alsomake up their own games and teach them mto people . Dolphins will almost play with anything balls, feathers , and many other things . They can play basketball ,play toss the ring , jump up high , fetch a stick in the water , ring a bell when he is jumping and other varieties . Sometimes dolphins are shy when they swim close to shore . If people are gentle to the dolphins get over their shyness.
