NOTE: A lot of the material I researched beforehand mostly come from the Wikipedia entry on dolphins.
How about I kick off this blog post with a dolphin picture? Here goes (picture will be replaced if I can't use them for certain reasons):

Yours truly made some tribute art LONG ago featuring a dolphin. Check this out:

Dolphins are incredibly interesting. Can you think of any sort of famous dolphins? Many know of Flipper. Many gamers know of Ecco. Some others even recall dolphins helping Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi in "Super Mario World." No matter what, you can't help but be fascinated with dolphins. A friend of mine from my college days loves dolphins, and so I kind of thought of her when I came up with this blog post.
I guess what I find most fascinating about dolphins is just how intelligent they are in addition to being very friendly. Dolphins are mostly not predatory animals, though I read they tend to kill porpoises as I was researching this topic. Some dolphins are even used by military. From what I read on that front, dolphins in military use are more like the water equivalent of bomb-sniffing dogs or try to move out water mines. There was even a study once that suggested that dolphins could help boost the mood in people who suffer from depression.
Needless to say... dolphins almost seem like natural wonders to us all.
Communication.Dolphins use certain sounds and calls to communicate with others. These include some rather loud noises and even some clicking sounds. Take a look at this video for a sample of dolphins answering questions:

I mentioned Ecco the Dolphin earlier. If you played the classic Genesis/Megadrive game series before, communication is important to conversate and even navigate your way through the game. It is a fantasy game, but it is just an example of dolphins communicating.
Dolphin Tricks!Let me share with you this video of dolphins performing tricks. It may not be like what you'd see at Sea World, but this is a fine showcase of dolphins and some of the tricks and stunts they can pull. Note also the trainers playing with the dolphins:

Now that you have insight on dolphins, let me share some final thoughts.
Dolphins: Final Thoughts
Dolphins are amazing creatures. Just learning about them and what they are capable of make them some of the most fascinating mammals alive. They are intelligent and playful. I might even say they are about as beautiful of creatures as horses (which I blogged about long ago). So if you get a chance to see or interact with dolphins, it is a most incredible experience.
I'll blog about [almost] anything here on "John's Blog Space." That even includes dolphins. I hope you got to enjoy this post and maybe take away a few things about dolphins. I'm sorry I can't fully help you with your homework assignment or essay project about dolphins, but you have just a little insight on them.
