Dolphins and man have enjoyed a unique bond since the dawn of time and it is ironic that the dolphin’s most dangerous predator is man. Having a better understanding of dolphins is mankind’s first step in conservation of the dolphin.
- Dolphins can tell how distant an object is and how solid it is by sending out sound waves and waiting for the echo to come back. This is called echo location and it takes place in the dolphin’s brain.
- Dolphin copulation only lasts 15 to 30 seconds and takes place between males and females, males and males, females and females, young and old.
- Female dolphins nurse their young 1 to 1 1/2 years and stay with their calves for three to five years.
- Dolphins that live close to the coast weigh 300 to 400 pounds and measure 8 feet long. Those living in deeper water can weigh twice as much and stretch out to 10 to 12 feet.
- Dolphin are conscious breathers which means they must think about every breath they take. They can stay under water, without a breath for 8 to 12 minutes and they have been known to dive 1000 feet.
- Dolphins make a wide variety of clicks, whistles, squeaks and squawks. One reason that people like dolphins is that their mouths are fixed in a permanent smile.
