They are found worldwide, mostly in the shallower seas of the continental shelves , and are carnivores, mostly eating fish and squid . The family Delphinidae is the largest in the Cetacean order, and relatively recent: dolphins evolved about ten million years ago, during the Miocene . Dolphins are among the most intelligent animals and their often friendly appearance and seemingly playful attitude have made them popular in human culture
The name is originally from Greek delphís ), "dolphin", which was related to the Greek delphus ), "womb". The animal's name can therefore be interpreted as meaning "a 'fish' with a womb".

    The road win streak ended for the Dolphins today as the Ravens took them down by a score of 26-10.  The only real highlight of the game was that I was there and got to take some photos.  Also, the Ravens fans were basically polite and did not throw things at me, which I very much appreciate.  As I was leaving the game, a Raven's fan said to me, "Hey hon, sorry about your loss."  I replied, "No worries, I am used to it."  He had a nice chuckle and told me to be safe going home.

Contact us Swimming with dolphins is something most people dream of doing, but somehow only a few actually pursue this dream. Most people seem to think that it's impossible to find dolphins in the wild or just don't have sufficient funds to travel around the globe, hoping to find a pod of wild dolphins and then get close enough to actually swim with those dolphins. Others might feel that they would have to share the intimacy of the dolphin encounter with hundreds of other people in a small wading pool and thus only get to spend a few seconds with these friendly sea mammals without any real contact. Although this may be true in the massive over crowded Sea World parks and aqua parks in the USA, the Bahamas, Mexico or other busy tourist locations, this "swim with dolphins" dream can easily be turned into reality in the picturesque costal town of Laem Sing in Chantaburi province, Eastern Thailand. This is where you will find the dolphin nursery and dolphin training center Oasis Sea World . The sea world label may be considered somewhat of an exaggeration, since there is a just a dolphin show besides the swim with the dolphins option and there are no other species of sea life present.

    DOLPHINS DOLPHINS SHARKS WHALES HOME ... SPORT DOLPHIINS SYMBOLISE FREEDOM, JOY, GRACE and SERENITY the WORLD OVER. ABOUT DOLPHINS Dolphins are warm blooded mammals like man. Unlike fish, they give birth to one baby calf at a time. At birth a bottlenose dolphin calf is about 90-130cms long and will grow to approx. 4m, living up to 40 years. They are highly sociable animals, living in groups called pods, with dolphins from other pods interacting with each other occasionally. The dolphin is beautifully adapted for their life in the ocean Dolphins use their powerful tail flukes in an up and down motion to move through the water. They also use their tails when hunting, hitting a flinging fish up into the air with their tail, stunning it, then scooping the fish up when it falls back into the water. A dolphin slapping its tail on the water in the wild may be a sign of annoyance, or a warning to other dolphins of danger. Their tail muscles are extremely powerful powerful allowing them to stand upright on their tail fin and propel themselves forward - walk on water. Their pectoral flippers are used to steer them through the water, and they also use them to stroke one another, increasing the social bond between them. Dolphin "friends" may swim along face to face touching flippers. Dolphins that appear to be closely bonded may swim in synchrony, twisting, turning and swimming in perfect harmony together. Their teeth are interlocking rows of conical pegs, suitable for holding slippery fish. They eat their fish whole, head first. In the wild an open mouth is a sign of aggression, as is head nodding. A sign of greater aggression is violent jaw clapping.

    All dolphins are toothed whales belonging to the sub-order, odontocetes , of the order cetacea (see section on humpback whales for more information). As a group, dolphins are often referred to as "small" cetaceans, even though some of them are quite large, attaining lengths of over 20 feet. In addition, although the terms dolphins and porpoises are often used interchangeably, they really refer to two different types of animals.
    Porpoises belong to the family Phocoenidae . They are generally smaller and more robust species. Most attain about 5-7 feet in length. Porpoises have no distinct beak, or rostrum . Their foreheads slope almost uniformly to the tip of their snout, and their teeth are spade-like in shape. The family Phocoenidae is rather small, and consists of only six members. There are no porpoises found in Hawaiian waters.
    Dolphins belong to the family Delphinidae . Dolphins possess a distinct beak. Their teeth are conical in shape. Most species of dolphins are larger than porpoises, with the males usually being larger than the females. The family Delphinidae is the largest and most diverse family of the cetacean order and includes 26 living species. Several species of dolphins are found in Hawaiian waters.
    Below is the biological classification for the common dolphin: Kingdom Anamalia Phylum Cordata (vertebrates) Class Mammalia Order Cetacea Sub-order Odontoceti Family Delphinidae Genus Delphinus Species delphis
    In addition to being found around Hawaii, dolphins of some kind occupy virtually all oceans and major seas as well as some large river systems. Their distribution, however, is not random. Each species has become specialized to fit into a particular

    Pink and Gray River Dolphins
    Of the five freshwater species of dolphins in the world, the pink Amazon River dolphin, Inia geoffrensis , or "bufeo colorado as they are known in Peru and botos" as they known in in Brazil, are considered to be the most intelligent. These friendly, sensitive, mammals with a brain capacity 40% larger than that of humans, who have lived in harmony with the people of the Amazon and its tributaries for centuries, now face extinction in some tributaries. What was considered to be one of the least threatened species of dolphins 20 years ago, has now become one of the most endangered species due to the accelerated and commercialized rape of the Amazon basin and the destruction of the South American tropical rainforest. No one knows the actual number of Inia geoffrensis that live n the Amazon basin, but according to the reseach and studies that Roxanne Kremer has conducted in the Upper Basin of the Peruvian Rainforest, 150 kilometers upstream of Iquitos, Peru, the number of pink dolphins from 18 years ago has risen from eight pink dolphins on the Yarapa River to 35 to 45. Ms. Kremer counted the dolphins in July 1998. ISPTR believes that her work with the Peruvian Forest Police to protection both species of river dolphins, and empowering the local peoples of their rights and use of the law, there has been less illegal commercial fishing and logging in the area, thus saving the natural habitat of the land and aquatic life.

    Dolphins have been interacting with humans for as long as we have known of their existence.
    During this time, their more dangerous predator and the only one that have dramatically reduced dolphin population is the human.
    Even though we all agree that Dolphins are wonderful creatures that seem to be extremely intelligent and friendly, we still are a huge threat for dolphins.
    This site is a tribute for dolphins, these great animals which everybody likes, but know so little about them.
    A deeper knowledge and further information about dolphins is definitively the first step towards better conservation and understanding of these wonderful mammals. Besides, the information is the weapon and our little contribution to fight dolphin killing and habitat damage.

    Dolphins are small-toothed whales that migrate through the tropical and temperate oceans of the world; freshwater dolphins live in the rivers of South America and tropical Asia. Unable to do without food for long, they migrate year round to ensure adequate food supplies. Dolphins are born weighing 30 to 50 pounds and are 35 to 50 inches in length. They are born without teeth, not growing them for several weeks thereafter. When males mature, they leave their birth communities to form bachelor groups of their own, hunting and feeding communally. They return to female groups to mate. Dolphins of both sexes aid each other in times of trouble or infirmity, i.e., two dolphins will support a third by each extending a flipper beneath a sick or injured comrade, and bring the ailing animal to the surface frequently to allow it to breathe. Although there is some controversy regarding the relative nature and degree of dolphin intelligence, it has been noted that they respond swiftly to training, delighting aquarium visitors with antics that usually draw fish rewards. They have complicated brains which may be comparable to those of humans, and learn tricks faster than the brightest monkeys. They seem to communicate with each other by high-pitched whistles and grunts when feeding or in moments of distress or pleasure. Some scientists hope eventually to train dolphins to talk.

    How smart are dolphins? And, lots of other interesting facts... How do dolphins sleep?
    Dolphins have to be conscious to breath. This means that they cannot go into a full deep sleep, because then they would suffocate . Dolphins have "solved" that by letting one half of their brain sleep at a time. This has been determined by doing EEG studies on dolphins. Dolphins sleep about 8 hours day in this fashion. A dolphin's behavior when sleeping /resting depends on the circumstances and possibly on individual preferences. They can either:
    swim slowly and surface every now and then for a breath
    rest at the surface with their blowhole exposed
    rest on the bottom (in shallow water) and rise to the surface every now and then to breath.

      (whales, dolphins, and porpoises) Dolphins breathe air at the surface of the water through a blowhole located near the top of the head. How often they need to breath and how long they can hold their breath depends on the species. The common Dolphin can hold their breath up 15 minutes or more, although they usually stay only a few minutes diving. The bottle nosed dolphins need to breath every 2 minutes. Dolphins live all over the world, from cold northern waters and warm southern waters. Bottlenose dolphins prefer warm waters.
