Dolphins1



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
