But a recently published report is saying a new enchanting fact about this mammal according to which dolphin inhales through their mouth, not through its blowhole.

The blowhole exists on top of heads of the Dolphin which is outlined as the “nose,” of this mammal, which helps the animals, ousts old air and fills their lungs with new air when they surface.

Researchers from the University of Otago said that Dolphins breathe through their mouth rather than blowhole.  A dolphin spotted at the coast of New Zealand who is found to breathe through its mouth. The animal is from Hector’s dolphin category and is archived accomplishing something uncommon in dolphin research: breathing basically through its mouth rather than its blowhole.
