March is Dolphin Awareness Month

60 Piece Puzzle Dolphin Duo by RavensburgerExotic Animal Newsflash:

The month of March is a month to celebrate and raise awareness of dolphins globally.

They are extremely intelligent creatures with bubbly personalities.

They are mammals, and are closely related to, but are not themselves, whales or porpoises.

There are so many species of dolphin in our oceans that they are too numerous to name here, but there are a few that I will mention that are commonly misnamed as whales, but are actually dolphins in their own right.

These include the “killer whales” (or orca), pilot whales, and the melon-headed whale. Very interesting indeed.

So varied and marvelous they are, there is even a pink dolphin in the Amazonian Rainforest!
