Dolphins are super intelligent! They aren’t just fun and lovely creatures. They are considered by science the second smartest species in the world, the first being humans. These animals are even capable of naming each other! They can recognize each other by different types of whistles.
- Dolphins love to play
Have you notice that dolphins are always playing and jumping in the water? It’s because they really love to play! No other animal has such behavior. In addition to basic needs like food and reproduction, they like to socialize and exercise. Fantastic, don’t you think?
- They have very efficient communication
Did you know that dolphins have a communication system that consists of sending high-frequency sounds to inform other animals of their species about their prey? Yes, they are able to communicate with others about everything that goes on: from obstacles to predators, the sound echoed back to the other dolphins.
- They live an average of 17 years
An animal like this is capable of living up to 17 years (or more), depending on its quality of life. In captivity, the animal is able to live even more years. However, it is in nature that they feel happier.
They are very affectionate animals, which, despite living all this time, they don’t lose their charm and their desire to play!
