The Dolphinarium in St. Petersburg opened its doors in 1998. It is a subsidiary of the Utrish dolphinarium, which is based on the village, in the Black Sea in 1984, based on the marine research station as it was involved in the representation of bottlenose dolphins, beluga whales, seals, sea lions and walruses. During their acts, the animals can jump out of the water, jump through hoops, carry the trainers on their backs, sing, draw and perform other tricks that are always a delight for children and adults.
The dolphins sleep peculiarly, when one hemisphere sleeps, the other is awake. There is a pool of artificial sea water. Salinity is close to the composition of water in the Black Sea. Of course, holding these animals in their natural habitat in St. Petersburg is not possible, but zoo staff are doing everything they can to make the actors feel comfortable.
There is a suggestion that dolphins do not hear the human voice, but this is not so, dolphins are able to perceive the music and the loud voice, although they do not detect the sounds at the highest frequencies.
