    Dolphins
    We are writing today about dolphins, which are found throughout the Bahamas and other parts of the world.

    Here are the top 10 facts we found interesting:

    1.Dolphins don’t have the best sense of smell
    2.Young dolphins have to spend 2 to 3 year with their mother before they go on there on.
    3.Dolphins are able two use both sides of there brain.
    4.Dolphins have two stomachs. The first one stores the food for them, the second one digests the food.

    DOGS Dogs are furry animals that are related to wolves. As you know dogs can be friendly. Some are afraid of people, some can be vicious and some can be crazy and like to play. Dogs are cute and fluffy and have so much fur that you cannot even see their eyes. Puppies are very cute baby dogs. They are scared of people or friendly just like their mothers. Dogs may have one, two or more puppies, like ten or twelve. You can get a dog for a pet, you can keep it clean and also take care of it and love it.
