               Classification

     Have you ever learned about the classification facts
for the bottlenose dolphin? I have lots of classification
facts and I’ll share with you. First, I will tell you a
classification fact that makes a dolphin a mammal. The
bottlenose dolphin has little hairs on it’s head that makes
him a mammal. Also they are warm blooded. Warm
blooded is when its body tempter doesn’t change.
Bottlenose dolphins breathe with lungs. There are many
reasons a bottlenose dolphin is a mammal but this is the
most important. The dolphin gives live birth!
                         Habitat
      Do you know were a bottlenose dolphin lives? There are many
places where they live. I guarantee you will know where to find a
bottlenose dolphin if you read this. The mode of the data is that they
live in the sea or a ocean. They bottlenose dolphin lives in the
northern, and southern hemisphere. The bottlenose dolphin is also
located in the unclosed seas like the Mediterranean Sea and the
Red Sea.
           Food and Feeding

    Do you know that bottlenose dolphins our prey
and predators? Well if you don’t read on and you will
learn. Bottlenose dolphins love to snack on little fish
called minnows. They also like to eat small squid
and ells. This makes them predators because they’re
eating other animals. Bottlenose dolphins our prey
too. Sharks like to nibble on this kind of dolphin. The
bottlenose dolphin has to be careful of what they’re
eating because if they eat a puffer fish it might blow
up and the points will get stuck in the dolphins
mouth. The bottlenose dolphin might die.
                 Life Cycle
     Do you know the bottlenose dolphins life
cycle? It’s really cool so stay here to learn. first,
a bottlenose dolphin stays in its mom’s stomach
for about 12 month than it gives live birth. When
the bottlenose dolphin gets a little older it has a
decision to make, either to go on its own or stay
with its family. ( It stays with its family more
often.) If the bottlenose dolphin does go on its
own it will go looking for a male to start a new
life cycle, by making more caves.
                      Adaptations
      I have many physical and behavioral adaptations for the
bottlenose dolphin, and they’re great facts. First, I’m going to tell you
my behavioral adaptation for the dolphin. Bottlenose dolphins look
up after each other so when one dolphin is hurt they take care of
each other so they don’t drown. Another is the bottlenose dolphin
swims in groups called pods. Also the dolphin swims 20 MPH to get
out of danger. Now I will tell you my physical adaptation. Bottlenose
dolphins have flippers to turn left and right. They also have a big tail
to swim faster to get away from their predators, or to catch their
prey.
        These are all my facts about the bottlenose dolphin. now you
know all about them!
