Did u know?

Since my last visit to the Dolphin Discovery interactive center here in Grand Cayman, I have to say that I've learn a bit more about dolphins (specially the Bottlenose species).


Did you know?

Dolphin sheds their skin every 2 to 3 hours (and us humans about once a day- in some cases maybe more if your don't moisturize, LOL!), to keep their body shinny smooth and be more aerodynamic to swim fast.

Did you know?

Dolphins have only one set of teeth for life, so instead of chewing their food, they swallow it whole in order to protect their teeth.


Did you know?

Dolphins have no vocal cords, all the noises and "whistles" they make, come out of their blow hole, which they also use to breath.

Did you know?

The largest dolphin is the killer whale (Orca) which also sometimes can kill and eat other species of dolphins...

And on a side note...

Did you know?

Our dog Sheba has amazing skills with her paws, she can hold a tennis ball while trying to impersonate a dolphin- well, she doesn't really try to impersonate a dolphin, but she can hold that ball...

Have a great day : )

Some interesting dolphin facts, only knew about the Orca (I find their killer instinct a bit scary to put it mildly!).
And how talented is Sheba, lol!!!

I love learning more about dolphins! When we saw dolphins in Hawaii, we learned that they can also sense when a human is pregnant and will circle around to protect her. Such fascinating creatures!

I did not know all those facts about dolphins.
Sheba's saying "Ditto, take it! It's tooo HEAVY!"

this was soooooooo cute!!

I loved it and I loved learning those Dolphin facts!

When I used to be a lifeguard they used to call me "Flipper" because I swam like a Dolphin and I am able to shoot water out of the space between my front teeth lol.

I always say when I die if there is another life I am coming back either as a Dolphin or a cat!
