I don't get it, how come the only flesh eating predatory dolphins are not called dolphins? What are these scientists trying to hide?

    Scientists didn't coin the term, moronic normoids did
    We live in a world of specialization where we are going to be ignorant fricking morons about a lot of things that we don't have to learn about and are going to annoy the more knowledgeable people endlessly, that's the price for a functioning civilization

      its like false map turtles, which doesnt make any sense because theyre in the same same family as map turtles
      theres also the false gharial, which is more related to a gharials than crocodiles, which i wouldve called a broad snoutted gharial at that point
      the false potato beetle is an actual fake because it looks like a potato beetle but isnt bad like the real ones
      but king snakes evolved to look like fake coral snakes with classic batesian mimicry

    eating predatory dolphins aren't called dolphins
    Do I have to write my fricking essay again? You also failed to include pilot whales, pygmy killer whales and melon-headed whales. To answer your question: they're called whales because they look different and are larger than what people perceived as 'dolphin', the pygmy killer whale being an exception in regards to size.

      Those are just standard fish eating dolphins. They're nothing like Orcas and FKW.

    Non-autists have already internalized that all dolphins are whales anyway and thus don't get hung up on the name.

      Wrong, it's not a mistranslation, and Orca is the actual Latin derived name.

    because dolphins and porpoises are whales, they just have special names that nerds can't get over.
    would sperm whales lose their whale status if they were called something else?

        Everyone bullies porpoises. Sexually frustrated male bottlenose dolphins kill them for fun and sea lions off of the Netherlands prey on them. Porpoises have no defense against anything.

        No it isn't, if you eat fish you're not vegetarian.
        I shouldn't have to say this but fish is not a vegetable, it's meat.
        If you eat no other meat but fish you're a pescetarian.

          Not to mention that eating seafood is way more environmentally harmful than eating land animals and is disruptive of the habitat and food cycle of marine animals. Freshwater fish caught from lakes or rivers are ok ig

                Sharks serve more of a role in an ecosystem than orcas do
                Everything useful orcas do sharks have already been doing by themselves

                I am not the guy you responded to but you're comparing an entire family to a species. Of course sharks are important but that's because there's a variety of them and each of them have their own differences in the ecosystem.
