Coolest Animals in the Ocean

The Top Ten

1 Dolphin Dolphins are a widely distributed and diverse group of fully aquatic marine mammals. They are an informal grouping within the order Cetacea, excluding whales and porpoises, so to zoologists the grouping is paraphyletic.

I am so glad that they are number one, they can actually develop emotions and are so smart, not to mention, cute!

Best, smartest, and friendliest sea animal by far.

They jump up high and they make those sounds it is so so cool good chose

Easy number 1. Very friendly, good looking and intelligent creatures! - Merggy

2 Great White Shark The great white shark, also known as the great white, white pointer, white shark, or white death, is a species of large lamniform shark which can be found in the coastal surface waters of all the major oceans.

It's the ancestor of the megalodon, the biggest shark ever to exist in the sea, or anywhere else! How can you say its not cool?!

Take this giant eating smelly fish of this list.

3 Killer Whale The killer whale or orca is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family, of which it is the largest member.

Please stop calling them "killer"
They aren't killers. They are extremely intelligent and don't kill unless they have to.

Killer whales or orcas are the largest type of saltwater dolphin. They are stunning killers of the ocean. Even though they are amazing hunters orcas don't attack people ( which is a good thing )

Killer whale are amazing! they are one of my favorite animals!
