    Depending on the animal, some blow bubbles for leisure, survival, or for smell. Some insects, like grasshoppers, will spray lots of bubbles at any predator that is approaching them. Dolphins blow bubbles not only for leisure, but to as a form of communication. Mammals use bubbles as a sense of smell. Fish will build bubble nests when they are happy or looking to mate.
