Researchers of an aquatic park in California want to discover the reasons that make dolphins excellent swimmers. In this video, they carry out studies with a Bottlenose dolphin.
Did you know that dolphins swim up to five times faster than the best human Olympic swimmer? Many think that this is obvious, since they are aquatic animals; however, they are mammals like humans. This is the reason why they are doing experiments to measure their speed and energy usage. It should be noted that those studies do not threaten the lives of these beautiful aquatic mammals.
