By naming its characteristics :lol:
Now, the dolphin probably evolved a specialised skin for water, no sweat glands etc... Look it up on wikipedia.org it shouldn't be hard to find.

It is very smooth, and has tiny muscles underneath that move with the water currents and make it more hydrodynamic. It is also very sensitive to touch, because they live in close-knit groups and bond through touch. Ithas a thick layer of stored fat, or blubber, underneath it that protects them from the cold and their organs from wounds during attack by predators.
