Common dolphins live in many habitats around the world and there are just about forty species of wild dolphins.
They are very closes related to whales and porpoises and many people refer to porpoises as dolphins but they are not the same.

In this photo these are bottlenose dolphins which means they have more of a beak whereas porpoises have a more rounded face.
Dolphins seem to prefer more shallow water and are carnivores. You might come across a school of fish jumping out of the water frantically and it's possible there's a dolphin just underneath trying to get a meal.
One interesting fact about dolphins is that they eat fish and squid mostly and have a tactic of herding the fish into a ball and then attacking the ball to get the most out of their efforts.
