Sad question and the sad truth is that some people have smuggled wild animals of all kinds to animal "lovers" (not) who want to be "special". These wild animals suffer and die whilst being transported, they mostly lead bad lives in cages, lots never see a vet because they are kept secret.
I would like to see other sentences at duolingo. Sentences about animals roaming free in the wild. About people taking care of them. Kids looking at a butterfly in the garden or birds in the sky. Animals living in a "forever" home.
The sentence is "The girl has....", so the verb "ha" goes with the girl, which is the subject of the sentence, not with "the dolphin" which is the object in the sentence. Also, "ho" is "I have" while "ha" is "he, she, it has", which is what is needed for "the girl". I hope my explanation is clear and helps.
No, not really.
From "Serf Researcher": Dolphin Attacks vs. Shark Attacks
"While the occurrences of sharks or dolphins attacking humans are rare, they both happen. With that said, dolphin attacks don't amount to nearly as many shark attacks. Dolphins are intelligent creatures and can be very curious, which is why they're more likely to interact with humans than sharks are. Shark attacks only occur due to mistaken identity. Sharks have poor eyesight and only attack humans because they misinterpret us for seals, whereas dolphin attacks seem to be intentional.
Dolphins and killer whales are both part of the Delphinidae family. So technically killer whales are not whales at all, but in fact dolphins, meaning there is an even higher number of human fatalities caused by the dolphin community. Our Are Orcas Dolphins Or Whales article explains this concept in further detail.
One of the most brutal dolphin attacks on record was described by National Geographic in 1994, when two men swimming off the coast of Sao Paulo, Brazil, were rammed by a large dolphin. Unfortunately, one of the men passed away from post-accident internal injuries.
That occurrence is the only known fatality caused by dolphins, while in contrast, 8 people died from shark attacks in 2021 alone. While this is a much higher number in comparison to dolphins, don't worry too much, as your odds of dying from a shark attack are still only1 in 3.7 million if you live within 100 miles of the coast."
