Comics Thursday, October 29, 1970 Eatables Answer »« Previous Puttie QUESTION; Is the dolphin a mammal or a fish? ANSWER: In ancient days, the Greeks observed certain large fish-like looking creatures in the sea, which resembled each other,, at least from a distance. They gave the general name dolphin to these creatures and venerated them as sacred to Apollo. Dolphins, they thought, were friendly creatures who carried the souls of the blest to the islands of Delight. At the same time, poems were being written about the brilliant colors of the dolphin when it came to die. But the Greeks were badly tangled in their natural history. Without realizing it, they were talking about two entirely different animals: one, a deep water fish, the other, a small whale, which is a warm- blooded mammal. Our pictures show the difference in appearance. At top is the large tropical fish with a blunt head called dorado, or dolphin. This is the dolphin which changes to brilliant colors as it dies. The dolphin at bottom is the one not a fish but a mammal, often called a porpoise. These are the smart animals which seem to communicate with each other by making clicking and buzzing sounds. So, a dolphin can be either a fish or a mammal. (Karen Baumann of Ft. Collins, Colo., wins a prize for this question.
