The Dolphin is a critter that spawns and swims in Oceans. Unlike most critters, it cannot be captured with a Bug Net, which means that there is no craftable cage for the Dolphin.

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.


  • 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."
