All About Animals: Dolphins

Kidzworld’s All About Animals is going to take a look at Dolphins this week! Dolphins are the friendliest animal in the wild environment and they are probably the smartest too. You might want to do a study on dolphins for a science project because they are so fascinating.


Sea Life Laughter

Sea SunshineSea Sunshine

Dolphins are by far the laughter of the sea. Not only do they always have a permanent smile on their face, but also, they know how to have fun. They surf in the waves and behind boats. They love swimming with people and they take pride in their swimming abilities to have fun and do tricks in the water. They are very compassionate and full of emotion, known to save other whales and humans in danger. They are truly the nicest souls of the Ocean and possibly the World.


Fun Features

What a Doll!What a Doll!

Dolphins are mammals like us and have been evolving for about 50 million years. There are dozens of different species of dolphins, but the majority of them look the same. Let’s take a look at some of their similar characteristics.


  • They are as small as 4 feet long and 90 pounds heavy
  • Orca’s (the largest type of dolphin) can grow up to 30 feet long and 10 tonnes heavy
  • They have 250 teeth and they love eating small fish and squid
  • They speak with click from their mouths and whistles out their blowhole
  • Dolphins swim close to the surface so they can breath about every 5-8 minutes
  • They swim in pods of 10-15 or schools of up to 1000 dolphins
  • They have a big beak but no sense of smell
  • They have extremely sensitive eyesight and hearing

The funnest thing about dolphins is the way they love to swim with people. They are full of tricks and they love to show off. Here is a list of things they have been known to do while performing on stage or just in any Ocean hanging out:


  • Jumping and Flipping
  • Synchronized swimming with their buddies
  • They understand commands and are easily trained
  • Walking on water
  • Kissing and Showing Affection
  • They have been known to joke around
  • They play with bubble rings

Side Stories

The way dolphins hunt really showcases their amazing intelligence! They have figured out a way to herd fish like dogs herd sheep. Don’t believe me… just check out this video…



The Cove

There is a movie released in 2009 at the Sundance Film Festival about the Japanese murdering of over 20,000 dolphins every year. The movie won the Festival and has brought a humongous investigation of why there are specific dolphin hunting operations in Taiji, Wakayama, Japan. They have been selling dolphins to aquariums all over the World for tremendous profits and slaughtering the others that don’t sell.



Save the Dolphins

You can help save the dolphins by writing to your local aquarium and asking them not to buy the dolphins that come from Japan. If you really love dolphins, you should look into learning more about this problem so you can spread awareness of this horrible nightmare.

I found the greatest riddle ever (credits to Ted-Ed), and I want to see if anyone can solve it without looking up the answer. THE RIDDLE OF THE ALIEN OVERLORDS. You and your team have crashed-landed on an ancient planet. The only way off is to appease its three alien overlords, TEE, EFF, and ARR, by giving them the correct artifacts. Unfortunately, you don't know who is who. From an inscription, you learn that you may ask three yes or no questions, each addresses to any one lord. Tee's answers are always true. Eff's answers are always false.  And Arr's answers are random. But, there's a problem. You've deciphered the language enough to ask any question, but you don't know which of the two words 'ozo' and 'ulu' means yes, and which means no. How can you still figure out which alien is which?

Fear: The Emotion of Death   You can't see me, But I'm there. I'm in your tears, I'm everywhere. I stalk you in your shadow, So stealthy and no slack. I'm made of dark matter, You better watch your back. You can hear me, I'm your beating heart. Inside is emptiness, Tearing you apart. You shiver and shake, At the sound of my name. I engulf you, drown you, Surround you with shame.   I've seen destruction, More than anyone. I'm darker than, The world with no sun. The agony arises, There's so much red. Most of it coming, From the dead. I become your shadow, I'm a terrible sight. And when you see me, You're frozen with fright. I'll grab you by your neck, You'll be thrashing around. You're crying, shrieking, Until there's no sound.   I feel so sad, So empty, so. . . Alone. So you'll feel the same, You'll be on your own. And as long as you are with me, At the point of no return. You will go crazy. You'll crash and burn.   Then you understand, With your slowing of breath. That I am Fear, The Emotion of Death.

[Warning: Boring]     It all started on one night where I was doing a quiz on Playbuzz. They were fun, but my mom thought they were inappropriate. Searching the web, she found this site and saw it had quizzes on it. They weren't that fun, honestly. And this site? It was kidzworld. I forced her to let me make an account, and we did. No status. No bio. No mood. No picture. I swore to not go in chatroom or chat with people, because apparently they could be an old man in a basement. I nodded in agreement, saying that she could trust me. Of course, I did some quizzes and went off. That night, we went to bed of course. Now major time skip.    It's, let's say, three nights later. About midnight, and my iPod is next to me. I decided to go and check out "kids world". Clicking into "login", I guessed my password since I really forgot it. Score! Got it right. Anyways, I look around. Forums. Quizzes. Games. And then something spotted my eye.  Chatroom.  Clicking on it, I typed in these exact words.  "Hello?" And that's how my journey started. A few days later, maybe a week, I was introduced to the "boards". Clicking on it, I immediately saw the Roleplay section. Unknowing what it was, I created "Lemini The Witch" and got into an argument with someone who I will not name((*Cough* Gpc78 )). Anyways, I deleted the post. My first Roleplay I made was Crystal Heights. Noobish, stupid, horrible. But surprisingly, people joined. This is where my soon-to-be-best- friend, Ivy, entered my virtual life. And my other best friends. first message: "Are you going to post? We're waiting for you two lovebirds! ;)". Conversation continued. And continued. Our bond grew and grew, until we had reached 100 pages of private messages. 100. Pages. I couldn't believe it at first. 100 pages of messages with my soon-to-be-best-friend. As most of you know, a few months ago, I created several hundred opportunities for advanced roleplayers who were not acknowledged to go through the gates of Roleplaying Heaven. Including me. I helped them by creating the Top Ten Roleplayers, and "accidently" tagging every single advanced Roleplayer. Even Musicgenius showed up. This is a process in the soon to be made   "Roleplaying Council", which I am a part of. During this, me and Ivy were nearing 300 pages of private messages. Crystal Heights was over, but my life was going uphill, closer to opportunity. Even in real life, my hopes were flying closer to the clouds. A few months after this, my faith in the Lord started to fade. I am 10, I started to realize the true meaning of the Bible and what it's message was. I was stuck in the middle of what seemed like a tornado, being swept over to one side, but then jerked back to the other, while being hurt in the progress. I was tearing myself apart. That's went the tornado stopped. It was just rain. I was closer to finding out my true religion. And that was atheism. I felt like I had to have a religion, like something had to have created the universe. My heart was leaning towards Christianity, but my mind was going to atheism. Go with your mind, not your heart, was my instinct. Me and Ivy were nearing 500 pages of private messages. Little did we know that I would be deleting my account and coming back as Ruby Phoenix. As the days passed, my hatred for my user grew. I finally decided to message Jordan that "Please delete my account". I don't know if it was a good thing or bad mistake I did that, but it's too late now. After this,  I felt like my roleplaying creativity was fading away. My titles weren't original like my old ones. I had changed a lot.  And I mean a lot.  On Animal Jam, I was afraid of deleting a buddy. Now I do it without hesitation. I don't cry as much. Like a shell has grown around my emotions. Thanks to the internet, I've grown tougher.  A few months later, my days were, and are, gloomier. I was, and still am, always stressed about tomorrow. If I have too much work. If I can't do things right. If I mess up. If I do anything wrong. I am confused. Why am I here? Where do we go after we die? Why didn't I just continue to not exist? What is my purpose? What's my religion? So many questions for a 10 year old in my fizzing, overloading mind.    I just wanted to share this, just to.
