Facts About Cabo Dolphins
A dolphin swim is typically a highlight of a young child’s life, and Cabo dolphins are magnificent creatures to experience. Incorporating a dolphin swim or tour into your vacation is a simple way to create great memories and learn a lot.
Here are some facts about Cabo dolphins.
Habitat and Family Life
The Pacific bottlenose dolphin is native to the waters of Cabo. Dolphins are very smart and social creatures; they travel in pods and typically form strong bonds with their familiar members. They work with their pod to catch fish and take care of each other. When hunting for fish, they give each other turns to eat. Cabo dolphins also have very sensitive skin and can frequently be seen leaping out of the water.
The average lifespan of Cabo dolphins is 17 years but some have been known to live as old as 50 years. Conservation efforts are currently underway to protect dolphins from hunting and poaching. Dolphins also frequently are hit by fishing boats or get tangled in wires, so every effort is being made to make the ocean safer for them. You can donate to the conservation efforts here.
There are 43 species of dolphins found in the wild. 38 species are marine dolphins and 5 are river dolphins. Dolphins have 100 teeth, but they don’t use them for chewing. They get fish in their mouth and then swallow them. Dolphins can actually swallow up to 30 pounds of fish a day.
