Dolphins are one of the most beautiful animals in the word. Dolphins are mammals and are part of the Delphinidae family. This family contains various highly intelligent aquatic mammals. The name dolphin refers to the species that a have a beak like snout and a slender streamline body which helps them to swim at high speeds. Species can swim up to 35 mph. Dolphins have skin that is hairless; this helps them swim through the water with little resistance. Dolphins skin is very sensitive and has no protection from bumps or bruises. This is because the outer layer is made up entirely of living cells. Since the outer layer is made up out of live cells it is shed every two hours to keep the cells fresh. Dolphins are small members of the whale order, Cetacea. Although the terms dolphin and porpoise are sometimes used interchangeably to refer to any member of the group, biologists recognize three distinct families: the true porpoises, with six marine species; the river dolphins, with five freshwater species; and the true dolphins, with more than 30 marine species. The killer whales and pilot whales are closely related to the true dolphins and are included in the same family. Although they are similar in appearance, a dolphin is distinguished from a porpoise by its long, sharp snout that is flattened like a beak; a porpoise has a short, blunt snout. The teeth of dolphins are cone-shaped while those Dolphins and porpoises, often called simply "small whales," are mammals, not fishes, and are thus warm-blooded, keeping their body temperature nearly constant even when they are exposed to different environmental temperatures. The mothers provide milk for the young and nurse them for a year or more. Like other whales, dolphins have lungs and breathe through a single nostril called the blowhole located on top of the head. The blowhole is opened during their frequent trips to the surface to expel and inhale air.
