Facts – Dolphin Pictures Wallpaper Images Download

Dolphins are a widely distributed and diverse group of fully aquatic marine mammals.

They are an informal grouping within the order Cetacea, excluding whales and porpoises, so to zoologists the grouping is paraphyletic. The dolphins comprise the extant families Delphinidae (the oceanic dolphins), Platanistidae (the Indian river dolphins), Iniidae (the new world river dolphins), and Pontoporiidae (the brackish dolphins).

There are 40 extant species of dolphins.

Dolphins, alongside other cetaceans, belong to the clade Cetartiodactyla with even-toed ungulates, and their closest living relatives are the hippopotamuses, having diverged about 40 million years ago.

Dolphins range in size from the 1.7 metres (5.6 ft) long and 50 kilograms (110 lb) Maui’s dolphin to the 9.5 metres (31 ft) and 10 metric tons (11 short tons) killer whale.

Several species exhibit sexual dimorphism, in that the males are larger than females. They have streamlined bodies and two limbs that are modified into flippers.

Though not quite as flexible as seals, some dolphins can travel at 55.5 kilometres per hour (34.5 mph). Dolphins use their conical shaped teeth to capture fast moving prey.

They have well-developed hearing − their hearing, which is adapted to both air and water, is so well developed that some can survive even if they are blind. Some species are well adapted for diving to great depths.

They have a layer of fat, or blubber, under the skin to keep warm in the cold water.

Although dolphins are widespread, most species prefer the warmer waters of the tropic zones, but some, like the right whale dolphin, prefer colder climates.

Dolphins feed largely on fish and squid, but a few, like the killer whale, feed on large mammals, like seals.
