Book Description: “100 Facts about Dolphins” is a book dedicated to the most famous dolphin of our planet: bottle-nosed dolphin. Are they smart? Are they kind? Are they really give names to each other? How do they give birth and grow their cubs? How do they master to live in water? How do they hunt, what do they eat?
There are more then 100 the best dolphin photographs and more than 100 the most interesting facts about them.
The Book consists of 5 chapters:
1. “Genesis” tells about the hero of the book and its evolution – where, when and how it comes from.
2. “Dolphin Advanced” is a chapter about adaptation to life in water: how do dolphins dive and swim; how do they breathe, and a lot of other wonderful details;
3. “Love and Routine” is about its sexual behavior, features of breeding and growing cubs;
4. “Community & Communication” is a chapter about role of sound in the life of dolphins, their social behavior and hierarchy in the pod, about most important thing in the animals’ life – hunting.
5. “Theory of Mind” is dedicated to issues of dolphin’s mind and intelligence.
We have to admit that we have grown to like dolphins so much that we cannot say goodbye to them. If you also have this feeling and would like to see the continuation of our dolphin project, then we invite you to do this with us.
The next step after the printed book “Being a Dolphin” (in Russian) and the iBook “100 Facts about Dolphins” will be the large interactive “Dolphin Encyclopedia”, with video, sounds, new interesting details and facts, and of course new photographs. And you, dear reader, can help us with this.
