Did you ever watch Flipper back in the ’90s? Or have you ever been to Sea World? Then you’ll know that dolphins are really amazing creatures. They are among the most intelligent, too, next to primates and parrots. Dolphins are known as cetaceans. That means they are closely related to whales, killer wales and porpoises. There are also roughly forty species of these aquatic delights in the wild or in captivity.
But back to the awesome that is the dolphin. The dolphin is a fascinating creature that has been capturing the imagination (and sometimes wrath) of people for centuries. “How could anyone get angry at such a cool animal?” Dolphins can be opportunistic, curious and mischievous. This sometimes leads them to steal fish from the nets of fishermen, whose livelihoods are dependent upon those fish. But when they are not pilfering pike or stealing salmon (purposeful error, since both pike and salmon are freshwater fish), they love to play and socialize. Dolphins are one of the only species in the world that has echolocation. Other animals that have it are bats and shrews.
As for Aurora’s delightful eight inch stuffed dolphin, you won’t find him in the ocean, but he is every bit as fun and adorable as the real thing! This plush stuffed animal is made of 100% kid-safe materials, he is cuddly and squishably soft. Dorsey, like real dolphins has a dark grey body, with a light grey or white upper body, a flat tail or fluke, and curious black eyes that seem to take in every detail.
