Sharks are probably the most important predators of bottlenose dolphins with the numerous shark-bite scars found on as many as half of all bottlenose dolphins providing evidence of such encounters. Killer whales are also likely to be one of the main predators.

Bottlenose dolphins, for example, have between 80 and 100 teeth that they use to grab, grip and secure their prey. However, the creatures can (and do!) bite humans on occasion. Because of the potential danger, officials at the Commerce Department's National Marine Fisheries Service have even released fliers with warnings that "dozens of bites have been reported" and "people have been pulled underwater" by the animals.

Common bottlenose dolphins (referred to hereafter simply as bottlenose dolphins) are found throughout the world in both offshore and coastal waters, including harbors, bays, gulfs, and estuaries of temperate and tropical waters (estuaries are the areas where rivers meet the sea). They are one of the most well-studied marine mammals in the wild.

Dolphins bite. Dolphins have sharp teeth that they usually use to rip apart their prey. Bottlenose dolphins, for example, have between 80 and 100 teeth that they use to grab, grip and secure their prey. However, the creatures can (and do!) bite humans on occasion.
