AMAZON JUNGLE – DOLPHIN
The Amazon Jungle River dolphin averages about 6.5 feet in length. They come in all shades of pink, from a dull gray-pink, to rosy pink, to a bright pink like that of the flamingo. This variation is due to water clarity; the darker the water, the pinker the dolphin will be. The sun’s rays cause the dolphins to lose their pink pigmentation. Murky water helps to protect the dolphin’s bright hue. These animals are also known to flush to a bright pink when excited. There are several anatomical differences between the Amazon Jungle dolphin and other types of dolphins. For one, Amazon Jungle River dolphins are able to turn their necks from side to side, while most species of dolphins cannot. This trait, coupled with the ability to paddle forward with one flipper and backward with the other, helps them maneuver when the river floods. These dolphins will actually swim up over the flooded land and their flexibility helps them to navigate around trees. Other characteristics that set them apart are molar-like teeth that allow them to chew their prey and bristle-like hairs at the ends of their snouts that help them search for food on the muddy river Amazon Jungle bottoms.
Habitat :The Amazon Jungle River dolphin can be found in the Amazon Jungle River system and the Orinoco River system, which flow throughout Brazil, Bolivia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Colombia, Guyana and Peru.
Diet :Amazon Jungle dolphins eat more than 50 types of fish as well as crustaceans found on the river bottom and the occasional turtle.
Human activity is the main threat to the Amazon Jungle dolphin. Although these dolphins have long been respected and unharmed because of the local belief that they have magical powers, these beliefs are changing. Some humans see them as competition and kill them so they will not have to share the river’s fish. The dolphins often become tangled in the nets of fishermen and die. Additionally, the building of hydroelectric dams in South American rivers, pollution, the loss of habitat and decrease in food sources all threaten this unique species of dolphin in this amazon jungle
