The females in the pod will protect the mother and assist in the birth.
One other evolutionary marvel that they share with Great Whites is an circulatory system—that means warm-blooded. The underwater footage provided a tantalizing glimpse into the undulating raw power. The bubbles form as a result of the pressure difference created by the movement of the fins. Another trick orcas use is to hitch a ride on waves or the wake created by boats, which helps them achieve twice their normal speed without exerting any extra energy. Shortfin makos are renowned for their speed and their ability to leap out of the water. New York: Time Life, 1992.

By bouncing sounds off surfaces which might be boats, fish, rock out-croppings or even people, dolphins can figure out an objects size, shape, and location. While it was believed that they were a single species, recent research indicates that they may, in fact, be comprised of several different species of Orca. Using your big toe as a pointer, do 15-20 circles with your foot in each direction. Because they only tend to live about five years in the wild, their flesh is prized for its purity—free of the heavy metals often found in longer-lived species. As our technology advances, scientists are able to observe the once-secret behaviors of animals such as the Pilot Whale, diving deep below the surface, and exhibiting behavior no one ever suspected.
Bottlenose dolphins live in all open oceans of the world except the Arctic and Antarctic oceans. Speed represents a tremendous expenditure, an investment of energy that must be replenished via consumed calories. Look how streamline this guy is. They form many kinds of social groups; mother-calf pairs, bands of mothers, and large societies. Because their breathing is no longer automatic, as it surely was when dolphins were land mammals, only one hemisphere of the dolphins brain goes to sleep at a time, the other half stays awake, with one eye open, to take in a breath every 5 minutes or so.
