10 Amazing Facts That Showcase How Awesome Dolphins Are

Breathing Consciously

Breathing is an involuntary exercise for humans but Dolphins have to consciously take every breath. Due to this, they cannot go to sleep fully. They let half their brain sleep at any time, while the other half is awake and takes care of these functions. They end up sleeping 8 hours a day like this.

Capable Of Suicide

As they have to consciously take every breath, they can also make the decision to not breathe in order to commit suicide. The dolphin that played ‘Flipper’ in the hit television show committed suicide because it was not being treated properly.
