Since a dolphin breathes air can it stay out of the water for a long time?

    No, it can’t, unless there is someone helping it to stay cool in another way. Dolphins use the water to cool down their body temperature, much like whales, and if they are out of water for extended amounts of time, they can overheat. But, as long as there is someone constantly pouring water over them, especially the fins, they would survive indefinitely.
