Males are significantly larger than females. They have a thick layer of blubber which helps them maintain their body heat and protects them from predators such as killer whales and large sharks. They have sensitive, smooth skin that flakes off and gets replaced every few hours. Despite the fact that they live underwater and can hold their breath for up to 7 minutes, dolphins must come to the surface to breathe air.
A muscular flap covers their blowhole while underwater and opens to exhale once they reach the surface. They must consciously swim to the surface to take a breath. This means they can never fully sleep.
One side of their brain must always be active so that they remember to breathe. Although they have little to no sense of smell, bottlenose dolphins have other well-developed sensory organs. With eyes located at the side of their heads, they have a nearly degree field of vision. They can also move each eye independently of the other, providing even more range. They have strong eye muscles which can change the shape of their lens and allow them to focus both underwater and in the air.
They secrete a mucus over their eyes which washes away debris. They also have an excellent sense of hearing. Sounds travel through their lower jaw to their inner ear.
Bottlenose dolphins communicate with each other using a collection of chirps, whistles, and clicks. They create these sounds using nasal sacs in their heads and their blowholes. Each dolphin has a signature whistle used to identify itself. When lost or isolated, a dolphin uses the signature whistle to call out to the group.
