Take a deep breath, gang, and join NG Kids as we learn ten fab facts about one seriously splash-tastic sea creature - the bottlenose dolphin! 1) Bottlenose dolphins are marine mammals that live in tropical and temperate oceans (oceans with mild temperatures) around the world. I just dropped my toasty warm waffles thinking about these dolphins, crikey these are some mind boggling facts aren't they!!!
In these groups they play and hunt together, as well as cooperate to raise young dolphin calves and help each other.4) Bottlenose dolphins are super swimmers, gliding through the water using their curved dorsal fin on their back, a powerful tail and pointed flippers. In fact, they can launch themselves up to five meters out of the water before crashing back down with a splash!
There are different theories as to why they do this - it could be to get a better view of things in the distance, clean parasites off their bodies, communicate with other pods or just for good fun!6) Although they live underwater, the bottlenose dolphin must come up to the surface to breath air. They can hold their breath underwater for around seven minutes.7) Bottlenose dolphins are kings of communication!
When the clicking sounds hit an object in the water - such as a rock or fish - they bounce back to the dolphin as echoes.
