Why Dolphins Make Great Best Friends

Why Dolphins Make Great Best Friends

8064092067_ac37e1462b_o

    Dolphins are one of the most intelligent animals and are known for being highly sociable. They show just how social they are by living in pods of up to a dozen individuals. Dolphins establish strong social bonds especially when it comes to injured and ill dolphins. Dolphins will stay with ill and injured dolphins, even helping them breathe. They do this wonderful act by bringing them to the surface and making sure their “friend” is okay!

    Dolphins display “culture” which was something proposed to be unique only to humans and primate species. The month of May, in the year of 2005, saw Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins demonstrating the use of tools to their young. Dolphins take care of their babies just like humans! There are other reports that display dolphins as helping a variety of cetaceans (other marine mammals including whales and porpoises).

      2. They engage you to come and have fun

      When you see a dolphin enjoying him or herself, you automatically become engaged. You too want to have fun with them. Now, that is the sign of a true best friend.

      3. They help you relieve stress

      By simply petting them, you can release your stress levels by a significant amount. The presence of specific animals allows your brain to release oxytocin which makes you feel better and improves your mood. In the process, they will adore you for petting them, and showing compassion, love, and feelings towards them.

        Dolphins are simply beautiful and gorgeous. There is no second guessing in that whatsoever. Their structures, their tail fins, their way of communicating, is simply majestic. What is more appealing, is that they are as beautiful inside as they are on the outside. Their fun-loving personalities and their quick way of swimming makes them just beautiful to watch.

        6. They show compassion

        7. They are loyal in nature

        When a dolphin bonds with someone, they truly love them. Become a friend with a dolphin and then you will know what I am saying. Once a dolphin’s friend, always a dolphin’s friend. Once a trainer and a dolphin develop a bond, the dolphin remembers the person forever. Dolphins swim up to their ‘people’ just like a dog runs to the front door when its owner is home.

          10. They know about feelings

          Dolphins share many of the same characteristics as humans. They are emotional creatures. They can show compassion, happiness, but can also show grief when a dolphin dies or gets separated from them. That is in true essence a friend.
