Dolphins are often seen as cute, friendly, and gentle animals from the ocean. But these beloved, playful creatures also have a dark side. Dolphins have many lesser-known behaviors that could be described as overly sexual or malicious. This includes taking advantage of others and inflicting harm on creatures.
Of course, dolphins don't think the way humans do. To them, these dark and disturbing behaviors are likely just fun and normal. They're simply relying on their natural behaviors and instincts in a way that's unsettling for us to comprehend. So, while these facts might ruin your innocent assumptions about dolphins, it's important to remember that they're not "evil" in any way. Every animal species behaves differently, but there are always some dark facts that are purposely kept out of pop culture.
