The life expectancy of dolphins in the wild is 40 or even 50 years (reduced by about half in captivity).
Their size varies from about 1.70 meters to 4 meters long, and their mass varies between 70 kilograms for the common dolphin (Delphinus delphis) and 400 kilograms for the Tursiops.

By including all dolphin species, we can say that their living environment extends over the majority of seas, oceans, and rivers (of course, each species can only live in a precise and restricted area).
Dolphins have a long beak called a rostrum. The latter has a morphology suggesting a permanent smile, which fuels human fantasies about the kindness of these animals.

The rostrum contains, however, between 80 and 120 small pointed teeth, which tell us the age of the animal. These do not allow for chewing, but a solid grasp of the hunted prey. The food is crushed in their strong stomach.
Many dolphin species live in communities, although some are solitary. Their sociability is such that sometimes, to go hunting, a mother may entrust her calf to other females.
These popular mammals often allow themselves to be approached, are affectionate, and playful. Some of them are even believed to have saved human lives.
Apart from being playful and curious, dolphins can’t stand loneliness. However, it happens that a member of a group is rejected, so they sometimes seek the company of men. We call him an “ambassador dolphin”.
Dolphins can reproduce once they reach the age of 5 or 6 years. This viviparous animal generally undergoes a gestation period (pregnancy) of 12 months to give birth to a single baby.
It is the tail of the baby that comes out first. Once born, the dolphin is brought to the surface by its mother so that it can breathe.
The dolphin is distinguished by its incredible motor skills (it is capable of swimming at more than 60 km/h) but above all by its social character. It is one of the rare wild animals to allow itself to be approached by humans, and even for some to enjoy their company.
