Dolphin therapy is a globally recognized non-specific method of strengthening of protective forces of an organism of people of different ages, as suffering from different kinds of disorders, and in individuals in the pre-existing condition, i.e. healthy. Dolphin therapy is also a method of medico-psychological rehabilitation and correction of children suffering from various developmental disorders. Animals are very sensitive with whom they have to deal with, beyond taking care of the sick child. The main component of the healthful actions of Dolphin therapy is the psychological effect of human interaction with exotic animals in an unusual human environment, and physical effect of the sonar, or sonophoresis, which carry the dolphins.
Dolphins here will agree, just one word. And how soon we have thoughts, images, feelings. After all, dolphins have long attracted the attention of the person, and they always have composed a lot of myths and legends. One of the beautiful legends tells that at the behest of the mother of the king of the seas and oceans dolphins become the soul of the dead sailors, and they rise from the depths of the sea to people and bring us all my unspent love and devotion. Perhaps that is why all sailors and even pirates always said that an encounter with a Dolphin brings good luck.
The nature gave the dolphins the capacity for disinterested friendship, because Dolphin does not require anything from man, and how old they are faithful and loyal friends. Many different legends exist about dolphins, but always and everywhere is the first friend and helper of man. Kind, beautiful, smart and selfless animal. After communicating with dolphins, people improves mood, increases efficiency, disappear feelings of aggression, apathy, fatigue and stress.
What I would like to say about these amazing creatures is the fact that dolphins are not fish, but mammals from the category of cetaceans, which are very similar to humans. Because the structure and internal organs of a Dolphin - the same as us. Birth of a baby, as well as people, are fed with milk, as well as people, and because they breathe, too, as we are - light, air, Dolphins do not have gills.
Dolphins give birth to one pup. The Dolphin is born tail forward, and immediately rises to the surface of the water to make their first breath. He certainly wants to eat, poked the muzzle into the belly of the mother, and drinks milk on the go. Immediately after birth, the baby is able to see, hear, swim, to distinguish his mother from other dolphins and to communicate with it using sounds.
If he lost, it begins to hover in the place where the last time he saw his mother, and she, of course, finds him. Because the level of intelligence in dolphins is very high. There is evidence that in the test on the test of intelligence, the Dolphin is gaining 190 points, and the human in the same test by only 25 points more.
Dolphins are warm-blooded animals with a constant body temperature of about 36 degrees - about as a human. They sleep near the surface of the water, occasionally surfacing to take another breath. A sleeping Dolphin alternately sleep only one hemisphere, the other in this time awake. After one hemisphere rested, it wakes up and sleeps more, and so during the whole time that you want the Dolphin to sleep. Both hemispheres take turns sleeping, some times exchanging roles during sleep.
You probably know that life originated from water, so once, many years ago, the ancestors of dolphins walked the earth, and only then, because of as yet unknown science of reasons, they returned to the water. What prompted them to do so is anyone's guess. Whether changing climatic conditions, whether the conditions of obtaining food, but in General, the fact remains that the dolphins back into the water, it is perfectly adapted and just never left.
The nature has generously endowed the dolphins, and they have remarkable property - the ability to give people pleasure. And that's exactly the joy You will give our charming and unmatched Pacific dolphins: Hercules, Vita, Mika , Hugo, seals Elochka and Alex, patagonian lion Nicholas.
From Dolphinarium "Nemo" with respect and love for nature.
