baby dolphinsDolphins come in all shades of pink from dull gray pink, to a rosy coloured pink, to a bright flamingo coloured pink . The darker the water is the darker the pink dolphins will be.  Baby dolphoins are sucked forward by the motion of their swimmimg mothers — giving them needed assistance when they position themselves to the right and behind their mothers. When  the sun rises the dolphin looses its pink colour. Dolphins can swim 18 miles per an hour. Dolphins turn a very bright pink when they are very excited!! Amazon River dolphins can turn their necks sideways and other species of dolphins.  All species of dolphins are mammals and are warm blooded. Dolphins have a single nostril that is called ma blow hole which is used to breath air in and out. Dolphins dive up to breath and then dive back in. Dolphins are known for being fast swimmers. They use their powerful tale to swim and move through big waves. Their fins are mostly used to stear. Dolphins move their tale up and down while fish move their tale up and down. Many dolphins hunt and travel at night. Dolphins make clicking sounds while swimming. Dolphins only get one set of teeth for their entire life. When dolphins look at an object under water they produce an oily substance that covers their eyes to protect them. Dolphins don’t have hair.    Only when they are first born they have hair and within two weeks the dolphin looses the hair. They don’t drink water like we do because most of the water they are swimming in is saltwater. Yuck!! So they get their water from the fish they eat. Dolphins are not any type of fish because they eat mammals like you and I. Pink dolphins live in the Amazon River!!!

            We hope you learned a lot about pink dolphins !!!!!

Great work Nancy and Getruda! Proud of both of you for taking initiative to research a topic of interest and writing a blog post on dolphins. Thanks for the sharing some interesting points. I never knew the darker the water the dolphin became a darker pink. Good thing pink is one of my favourite colours! 🙂 I think it is interesting dolphins turn a pink colour when excited, similar to humans, which may be one reason dolphins relate so well to people.

The clicks dolphins make when swimming is called echolocation. When those sounds hit an object it bounces back vibrations to the dolphins. This allows them to identify where objects are located. It is also believed the whistling sound dolphins make is part of echolocation. Some humans say they can actually feel the buzz from the dolphin echolocation when they are in the water around them. They can’t hear it but they do feel it.

Great video clips on dolphins! Thanks for sharing your information! Keep up the great work! 🙂

Great article! Love the dolphins
