Bottlenose dolphins. Photo courtesy:

There are more than 30 kinds of dolphins in the world. They are found in all oceans and in a few rivers.

In the wild, dolphins live in small groups called pods. Pod members work together to protect each other from enemies such as sharks. Sometimes the moms form a safe "playpen" by swimming together with the babies in the middle.

Bottlenose dolphins can live to be 40 years old.
