11 Facts About Dolphins That Will Prove They Are A Vicious Nightmare

7. Dolphins Are The Ultimate Carnivores

Well, are you thinking of tearing apart your dolphin rainbow drawing by now? Here’s another pearl of wisdom. Dolphins are not vegans or even vegetarians. They are cold-blooded, hungry meat-eaters. They hunt in packs for squid, small fish, and just about anything that moves or swims. They don’t just kill for food, They are creative hunters who like to hunt “in style”. They invent new techniques and even hunt, although rarely, on land!(source)

8. Dolphins Enjoy Dominating Weaker Creatures

If you think sharks are a ferocious, murderous lot, dolphins are no less. They like playing around with weaker animals just for the hell of it. They mess with them, play to their hearts’ content, then throw them away like a worn-out toy. For instance, officers at the Florida Research Centre have found out that when they are bored with real volleyballs, dolphins play shark volleyball. That is literally using a baby shark as a volleyball. Now I will agree that sharks are no saints either. But screwing around with a baby? That’s not nice, is it?(source)

9. Dolphins Are Storehouses of Sexually Transmitted Diseases

While you will probably never choose a dolphin as a life partner, a British woman of 41 years actually married a dolphin named Cindy in a ceremony in Israel. They shared a kiss and became partners forever after a twelve-year-­long relationship. Now all that sounds good and cute, but here’s why that was probably not a great idea. Dolphins are bags of sexual disease and are known to transfer a wide array of STDs to their partners. If your little girl is thinking of marrying a dolphin when she grows up, tell her to watch out!(source)


10. Dolphins Engage In Recreational Drug Abuse

If you used to think that only humans can get addicted to things they ingest, be prepared to change that view. This one weird video shows a group of dolphins getting high on neurotoxins secreted by puffer fish. As a defense mechanism, the puffer fish release this neurotoxin to deflect its hunters. In high doses, the toxin can kill, but in lower doses, it works as a recreational drug. This is exactly what the dolphins seem to be enjoying below:

Note that this isn’t just innocent dolphins falling prey to puffer fish secretion. They purposely attack this species to get high on their secretions!(source)

11. Dolphins Engage in Sick Nasal Sexuality

Apparently, dolphins enjoy inserting their male sexual organ into the blowholes of other dolphins, making this the world’s only instance of “nasal sexuality”. God! I don’t know about you, but I am definitely not sleeping tonight after writing this stuff! Aggressive sexuality is mostly noted in bottlenose dolphins who are famous for being extra horny.(source)

Okay. So dolphin-lovers are obviously gonna get angry. Also, the behavior of a few misbehaved creatures doesn’t represent an entire species. However, the truth is, it is the increased intelligence in dolphins that has led to them engage in all sorts of strange activity. More intelligence means more complexity. Now good night, and sweet dreams!
