    Dolphins are aquatic mammals that are closely related to whales and porpoises. There

    are almost forty species of dolphin in seventeen genera. They vary in size from 1.2 m (4

    ft) and 40 kg (88 lb) (Maui's Dolphin), up to 9.5 m (30 ft) and ten tonnes (the Orca). They

    are found worldwide, mostly in the shallower seas of the continental shelves, and are

    carnivores, mostly eating fish and squid. The family Delphinidae is the largest in the

    Cetacea, and relatively recent: dolphins evolved about ten million years ago, during the

    Miocene. Dolphins are considered to be amongst the most intelligent of animals and

    their often friendly appearance and seemingly playful attitude have made them popular in

    human culture.
