Nature gave to dolphins ability of disinterested friendship, because dolphin does not require anything from the man, and from year to year they are faithful and loyal friends. There are many different legends about dolphins, but always and everywhere — this is the first human friend and helper. Good, beautiful, intelligent and unselfish animal. After communication with dolphins people improve their mood, performance, disappear feelings of aggression, apathy, fatigue and stress. There is a need to point out few things about these amazing creatures. Dolphin — it is not a fish, but mammal from the category of cetaceans, which are very similar to human. The structure, and the internal organs of the dolphin are absolutely the same as we have. They give the birth to a baby-dolphin as well as people, feed babies with milk, as well as people, and they breathe too, like you and me, with their lungs – dolphins don’t have gills.

Dolphins are warm-blooded animals with a constant body temperature of about 36 degrees – the same as people. They sleep at the water surface, sometimes come out to make another breath. During the process of sleeping only one hemisphere of dolphin sleeps alternately, the other at this time awake. After one hemisphere rest, it wakes up and another hemisphere goes to sleep, and so on during the entire time that is needed for the dolphin to rest. Both hemispheres sleep alternately, changing roles several times during sleep. You probably know that life started from the water, so many years ago, the ancestors of dolphins could walk, and only later due to unknown reasons, they returned back to the water. What pushed them to do so, we can only guess. Whether the change of climate, or conditions of obtaining food, but overall the fact remains that dolphins came back into the water, adapted there perfectly and never came out of it again. Nature was very generously to dolphins. They have a striking feature - the ability to give pleasure to people. And exactly this joy you can get from our charming and unrivaled Pacific Dolphins: Hercules, Vita, Mika, Hugo, seals Elochka and Alex, patogon lion Nicholas.
