Evidence indicates that dolphins evolved from ancestors that walked on land. How can the concept of natural selection be used to explain the evolution of the present-day dolphin body? When the dolphin's ancestors began spending more time in the ocean, those that moved well in the water lived longer and produced more offspring.

Gaskin, D. E. The Ecology of Whales and Dolphins. Heinemann.Dolphins have very good vision both above and below water. Researchers have determined that dolphins are able to see objects as far away as at least 12 to 18 feet in air and around 9 feet underwater (Mass & Supin ; Herman et al.

; Pepper & Simons ). Scientists are still unclear, however, whether or not dolphins have color vision. The world's river dolphins (Inia, Pontoporia, Lipotes and Platanista) are among the least known and most endangered of all cetaceans.

The four extant genera inhabit geographically disjunct river systems and exhibit highly modified morphologies, leading many cetologists to regard river dolphins as an unnatural by:
