They push it up and down until it can swim by itself. Sharks and killer whales eat dolphins—especially babies. If a shark comes by, the dolphins circle around it to scare it away. If that doesn’t work, the dolphins will fight. Dolphins can’t always help each other. Many dolphins swim with schools of
