Even themselves are also the largest species of dolphin. Of course, all mammals in the Cetacea suborder are “whales”. So technically Dolphins are also toothed whales in the Odontoceti taxon. Although some scientists do not fully agree that dolphins are also whales, the fact that the debate is based on simple nomenclature rather than taxonomy reduces the severity of the situation. We can say with certainty that dolphins are taxonomically members of the Odontoceti (toothed whale) in the Cetacea suborder. So every dolphin can be a whale; but not every whale can be a dolphin.
When “whale” is popularly called, only toothless whales are understood. However, whales can be toothless or toothless. So taxonomically, all dolphins are toothed whales. There have also been no reports of attacks against people in nature, contrary to their names.
