Dolphins are really intelligent, friendly and playful marine mammals. They are closely related to whales and porpoises. As a matter of fact, dolphins enjoy plenty of incredible superpowers that have been a field of study for scientists all over the world.
Electroreception and Magnetic sense
Dolphins are able to locate objects from a distance through electroreception. It is some sort of aquatic beat boxing, it is pretty similar to bats’ sound waves that bounce and enable them to detect objects. Moreover dolphins have an amazing sense of magnetic fields. It is similar to the GPS; as it functions in the way in helping dolphins find their way out in the depths of the seas. Along with the good eyesight they have their movement gets more smoothness and easiness.
If you think that sleeping is a no brainer for each and every creature, then you have to reconsider this idea. Dolphins don’t sleep at all, they get rest while being awake. As they have an ability of shutting down one half of their brains’ each time. Studies showed negative signs of stress, less concentration or any other signs of sleep deprivation which gives the half brain theory more credibility.
On contrary to common belief that all beings can feel pain; dolphins don’t. They can endure pain, or to be more specific, they don’t feel it at all in the first place. It is proven that they go swimming, playing and feeding just after being badly injured. They feel pain only for minutes and then their bodies produce natural painkillers to overcome pains. Let alone they act normally as a sign of strength to avoid being vulnerable to predators.
Actually, dolphins don’t heal their wounds rather than that they regenerate. For instance, it takes only weeks to regenerate a similar basketball sized wound, leaving no scars or signs. In addition, they don’t bleed out they’re capable of constrict the blood flow.
Not only dolphin’s don’t feel pain, can heal wounds and control blood flow but also they are not prone to infections. They can swim with open wounds in bacterial waters without being infected. Their amazing ability is due to the fact that their immunity system by some means is able to produce natural antibiotics that keep them away from having infection.
After all, it is evident that dolphins are undoubtedly amazing creatures. They have a bunch of some distinguished characteristics that have been source of admiration for many.
