The name 'dolphin' comes from the Ancient Greek meaning "with a womb", because it was first thought to be a fish with a womb. It is now known to be a mammal, and quite an intelligent mammal. Dolphins breathe air. A dolphin's nose is on top of its head so the dolphin can easily breathe on the surface of the water. It is soft and smooth. However, it is very firm due of how much muscle they have. Dolphins have to find their foods.
