What do dolphins eat?
Unlike baleen whales who filter out millions of tiny krill, dolphins have 80 to 100 cone-shaped teeth which they use to eat small to medium-sized fish, squid and swimming crustaceans such as shrimp.
Dolphins often hunt shoals of fish by using 'herding'. This entails the dolphins swimming around a school of fish to squeeze them into a small bunch, called a 'bait ball'. Dolphins then take turns to swim through the bait ball, feeding on the stunned fish.
