Dolphins!

  • A dolphin looks more like a fish than certain fish do.
  •   It has a smooth, streamlined body. 
  • It is an excellentswimmer. 
  • As its powerful tail moves up and down, the dolphin seems to flash through the water. 
  • Like fish, dolphins are completely at home in the water.
  • There they play, feed, sleep, and bear their young. 
  • Dolphins can live only in the sea. Yet they are not fish. 
  • If you watch a dolphin, you will see something that shows it is not a fish. 
  • A dolphin must come to the surface to breathe. Fish can take oxygen out of the water. Dolphins cannot. 
  • Like us, they breathe with lungs and must take their oxygen from the air. And like us, they are mammals. 
  • Mammals are a large class of animals with backbones.
