I really like dolphins. They're active and cute and pretty. And I like the chattering noise they make. It's funny.

For something that filter feeds, the whale shark sure is the largest fish species on the planet! I also like its unique skin pattern of white spots and stripes as well. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

So cute and gentle! I swam with some today (legally) and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life! I truly adore the manatee species and you should to! They have super sense and touch and will "kiss" and be lively with you if you're quiet, stilll, and respectful of their home. They definitely deserve a top 5 spot!
