What a wonderful dolphin :aww:

My mind is still busy with thesis, sorry for low activity guys.


To be honest, when I post dolphin photo, I always feel the strong tendency to disable comments. Why? Because I am not only tired, but FED UP with kids who just saw the Cove and now they consider themselves experts on dolphin captivity. Do not bother, kids. I know ALL those arguments, I used to be anti-dolphinariums as well. But then I read much more info and facst and even some interesting information about your god O'Barry. So all I can recommend is: USE YOUR BRAIN AND STUDY THE ISSUE PROPERLY BEFORE YOU MAKE AN OPINION - and SURELY BEFORE YOU START TEACHING ME!

I, of couse, respect opinions of people who are very interested in an issue, read many books and are still against the dolphin captivity. I have NO problem with that. But I will be always annoyed by kids who base all their attitude on ONE movie, which is in fact no documentary, but rather ideology based movie.

Interesting facts: dolphin is a mammal, not a fish! Baby dolphins always drink mother milk | dolphins have bigger brains, than humans | dolphins usually live in groups | dolphin is one of few animals, who kill not only for food! Dolphins are well-known for killing porpoises, their smaller "cousins". Male dolphins are also known to rape the females. Male dolphins even kill baby dolphins to make their mothers want to mate again. Dolphins are not that cute and nice animals, as many people think. They have no problem to kill a shark and they sometime annoy or sexually harass swimmers in the sea | dolphins use very effective echolocation to search for prey | dolphins are time to time found washed ashore, too often dying nobody knows, why this happens.
Relationship with humans: people keep dolphins in aquariums and dolphinarius, where the animals perform special tricks dolphins very easily learn those tricks | there are scientific researches about dolphins, which usually prove their high inteligence | dolphins appear in many human legends | some dolphins help people to hunt fish throught whole generations of both, people and dolphins | US army uses dolphins, teaching them to find mines and so on... | in some parts of the world, wild dolphins come from their own will to interact with people


To see more, look at my WATER ANIMALS GALLERY :aww:

Absolutely wonderful :). I was lucky enough to witness a wild dolphin awhile back being very silly and proving that they can be quite the tricksters. I was by the beach awhile back and the life guards in the water were in training swimming out to a boey and doing their laps and along comes this dolphin, you could see the fin and he/she popped their head out a couple of times. But anyway this dolphin took the floaty boey, literally took it XD. And started swimming around in the water moving it, and the lifeguards were at first confused because the boey was no longer where it should be and couldnt hear the people on the beach trying to tell them about the dolphin. Eventually they figured it out (all the while the dolphin kept moving the boey, like a game of monkey in the middle) and the dolphin seemed to really enjoy this game, because he/she didnt let up playing it for quite some time so the life guards eventually gave up trying to swim to the boey and did their laps to a lifeguard boat. The dolphin kept playing with the boey and eventually moved the boey back to where it originally was almost as if to apologize for messing with them so much XD it was the funniest thing in the world and it was a moment I wished I had brought a camera.

sorry about the ramble I just love dolphins because they're so smart :P.
