What do dolphins eat?

Fortunately for dolphins, they are at the top of their food chain, and they have very few predators. In other words, not many other animals are able to eat dolphins.

Sometimes a very large shark, such as a great white shark, will kill and eat a dolphin. But usually, dolphins swim too fast for sharks to catch them, so a shark would have to be very quick and very sneaky to get itself a dolphin dinner.

Orcas sometimes catch and eat dolphins.

And the people in some countries like to eat dolphins.

But that’s about it; dolphins have very few natural enemies.

And, what do dolphins eat? All types of dolphins eat fish.
