Dolphin Facts

  • There are 36 species of dolphins in the world: 32 live in the sea and 4 in rivers.
  • Dolphins live and travel in "pods" (more properly known as "herds" or "schools") ranging in number from 2 to several hundred.
  • Are dolphins really smart? It's hard to know for sure or to prove it either way! Certainly the dolphin brain is much larger than the human brain.
  • Dolphins communicate with each other through whistles and appear to have friendships and social bonds within and across pods. A dolphin in distress will send out a particular whistle which is usually answered quickly by the other dolphins in its pod.
