Most people love dolphins and why wouldn’t they, given how intelligent, inquisitive, and playful they are? Those of you who grew up watching Flipper’s adventures would know by now how clever these mammals can be, yet dolphins are so much smarter than most people imagine. Mostly found in shallow seas, dolphins aren’t necessarily picky eaters although their diet consists mainly of fish and squid.

What exactly are the characteristics that make dolphins so amazing among all the other mammals on planet Earth?

10Dolphins do not drink water
Although they live in (mostly salt) water throughout their lives, dolphins never drink any amount of water. You may be wondering how is it possible for a creature living in water not to drink any of it. Interestingly enough, dolphins are actually allergic to seawater, developing serious health conditions every time they accidentally drink any of the water around them. They do, however, consume water, by taking it from the fish and squid they eat thanks to their specially evolved stomach.
