"What Do Bottlenose Dolphins Eat?" What Do Bottlenos Dolphins Eat. N.p., n.d. Web. 04 Mar. 2013. How do dolphins eat? To eat, dolphins usually use one of two techniques, one is called herding and the other corralling. Both are explained well detailed in the how do dolphins obtain their food slide. With any of these ways of capturing food, dolphins wait for their turn to feed and when they go they eat quickly, if they were taking turns to feed on a school of fish, a dolphin would go and swallow a fish without even chewing. If the fish is too big for the dolphin to swallow it will hold the fish by its tail, (tail inside the mouth) and hit it against surrounding stones or if is shallow enough, against the ocean floor. How do dolphins digest their food? Dolphins, although having sharp teeth try to avoid chewing. This means food will go directly down to the esophagus. The dolphin has three stomachs, the fore stomach, the spherical stomach and the pyloric stomach. First food travel through the fore stomach. The fore stomach is also a storage area for food. After the fore stomach, food continues towards the spherical stomach. In the spherical stomach is where all the acids are released, also digestive juices are released. The pyloric stomach is the last stomach food goes through. After the pyloric stomach comes the pyloric sphincter where bile empties its enzymes and juices. After the pyloric sphincter comes first the small intestine and then the large intestine. In the small intestine nutrients are taken from foods. In the large intestine liquids are taken from the food. After the large intestine, comes the rectum where the leftover waste is made into feces. After feces is created in the rectum, feces exits the dolphin's body through the anus. Conclusion In conclusion, dolphins are very cool animals that live a fun an healthy life style. They live in habitats full of animals they can eat, and stay away form predators. They also live in groups, just like humans live in families. Also, they have a similar digestive system, in some parts at least.
