The relationship between sharks and dolphins reportedly has two sides. On the one hand, they can live and hunt together peacefully. On the other hand, sometimes sharks attack lonely dolphins and sometimes dolphins in a group attack sharks. With their hard and pointed head, the dolphins ram into the smooth belly or the gills of the shark and hurt it. The shark can die because of these injuries.
Many cases of dolphins protecting humans from shark attacks have been documented, such as an attack on a surfer in northern California in August 2007. It was also documented off the coast of New Zealand in 2004. Typically, dolphins form a ring around humans who are injured. However, in spite of years of scientific study, there has been no conclusive explanation given for this behavior; as mentioned in the Journal of zoology, "The importance of interactions between sharks and cetaceans has been a subject of much conjecture, but few studies have addressed these interactions". In some cases, sharks have been seen attacking, or trying to attack dolphins. It is known that when dolphins are seen, sharks are usually nearby. As stated by ISAF: "Remember that sightings of porpoises do not indicate the absence of sharks --- both eat the same food". PIGS CAN FLY
A dolphin is a mammal and breaths air, a shark is a fish and has gills.
a great white shark is a fish and a bottle nose dolphin is not
The only similarity is that both live in the water. A shark is a fish, while the dolphin is a mammal.
Some sharks can get a lot bigger then any dolphin.
Shark is to fish dolphin is to mammal.
The relationship between the shark and the fish is that the shark is bigger, faster, and stronger, and the fish is inferior to the shark. The shark will always win and eat the fish.
Dolphins are mammals and sharks are fish.
yes a shark can eat a dolphin . dolphins are a sharks prey.
No! A dolphin is a mammal, a shark is a fish - never the twain shall meet!
Well, first of all it depends on what kind the dolphin or shark is.....
a predator to a dolphin is a shark
the tail of a shark moves side to side (left to right) and a dolphin tail moves up and down to swin to the surface to get in AIR
Definitely no. A dolphin is a marine mammal ( they breath air ) a shark is a fish they have gills.
Shark are fish and breath water Dolphin are mammals and breath air.
when a dolphin is alone it can be killed by sharks but when dolphins are moving in packs they can kill the hammerhead shark. A dolphin can poke at a hammerhead shark so that the shark flips into the air. Then the dolphin calls his friends, and they poke the hammerhead to death.
it depends which shark is it
If a dolphin is fightin one-on-one then the shark would win. If in agroup then the dolphin would probs win.
The special characteristic of a dolphin is the dolphin or dolphins know the weakness of shark. Known as their worst predator! If a shark and a dolphin were to get into a territorial diagrement or a fight then the dolphin would definitly win by using it's nose to puncture the gills of the shark or use it's nose to jab the eyes to make them not be able to see the dolphin! There for the shark will swim away or die possibly and the dolphin would win!
obviously a shark the dolphin is just gonna sit their and scream while the shark kills its prey Anthony J.Suero
It is possible to have a nice friendship with a dolphin. They make nice pets. Better than a shark!!!!
