What kind of animal is Dolphin?

A dolphin is a type of mammal that belongs to the group of toothed whales.
Dolphins are highly intelligent, social, and playful animals that live in the ocean or in some rivers.
Dolphins have a sleek, spindle-shaped body, a beaklike snout, and simple needlelike teeth.
They use echolocation to find their prey, which consists mainly of fish and squid.
Dolphins communicate with each other using squeaks, whistles, and clicks.
Some dolphins can also recognize themselves in a mirror, which shows a degree of self-awareness.
Dolphins are often friendly to humans and can perform amazing tricks in captivity.
However, dolphins also face many threats from hunting, fishing nets, climate change, and habitat loss.
