The Dolphin is a critter that spawns and swims in Oceans. Dolphins make typical dolphin sounds and occasionally jump and flip above the Ocean surface. They also sometimes poke their head out of the water in direction of the nearest player. If kept outside of water for an extended period of time they will die.Verify

Dolphin has only 5 health and no defense, and can be damaged by other enemies and players.

Unlike most critters, Dolphin cannot be caught with a Bug Net, which means there is no craftable cage for it.


  • Dolphins and Sea Turtles cannot be captured because they are considered to be too big.[1]
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Dolphin: "A playful sea mammal whose intelligence rivals that of humanity."
