Like us, spinner dolphins are mammals, which means their females give birth! They are pregnant for about 10 months, and give birth to one calf (that’s a baby dolphin) at a time. Dolphin mothers have to take care of calves, nursing them for 7 months.
Spinner dolphins can be found in tropical seas all over the world, almost always in groups called pods. It is common for pods to include around 200 dolphins, but some have had up to 1,000 dolphins! Sometimes, spinner dolphins will also group with other dolphins and even other animals in the sea, like tuna.
