“If you had a dolphin for a pet, it might take you for a ride.” 
Such words may be enough to seal any second grader’s zeal for dolphins. It did mine, and I have been admiring these beautiful creatures ever since!
Dolphins can hold their breath for up to twenty minutes. They use their built-in sonar to locate food by sending out calls that produce echoes from nearby objects. This method is referred to as echolocation.
Dolphins eat fish and squid, which I once fed a bottlenose dolphin named Misty (who, judging by her smiling countenance and friendly persondolphinality, thoroughly enjoyed being at Sea World).
