A LITTLE ABOUT DOLPHINS
Dolphins are just some of the beautiful creatures living in our vast oceans. They are mammals like whales, giving birth to live young and continuously making trips to the water’s surface to breathe air. See that spray coming out of their blowhole when they push themselves to the surface? That’s how they exhale. Then, after one-fifth of a second, they inhale and go down to the water again.
There are several types of dolphins. Some live in fresh rivers and coastal waters. Others in the deep blue open sea. But there is one thing they all have in common. They are all carnivores that eat fish, jellyfish, octopuses, squid, and other small sea creatures. A dolphin weighing about 400 pounds can eat 50 pounds of fish daily.
They constantly swim to other zones with their families and friends to sustain their appetite and find lots of fish. Dolphins are social animals and travel in groups called pods. Each pod usually comprises two to 30 dolphins, but bigger groups exist depending on the species. Smaller dolphins typically form bigger groups for protection against sharks and other predators.
Dolphins are symbols of joyfulness, teamwork, intelligence, and guidance. They are known not only to look after their own kind. They also help humans in distress. There are several stories out there about them saving people. As to why they do that, even experts cannot explain. What’s clear is that they are highly intelligent and compassionate creatures worthy of our love and appreciation.
Let’s express our love for dolphins by working on these coloring pages! Through this activity, you can celebrate the beauty of these animals and boost your artistry. It may not be part of your routine today, but once you experience the therapeutic effects of coloring, you will undoubtedly want to turn it into a hobby.
