dolphins save the whales

March 14, 2008 by jjosh

O.k., it’s (finally) time to post about dolphins.

First, this great BBC story about a dolphin saving a couple of beached whales. My favorite line:

"I don’t speak whale and I don’t speak dolphin," Mr Smith told the BBC, "but there was obviously something that went on because the two whales changed their attitude from being quite distressed to following the dolphin quite willingly and directly along the beach and straight out to sea."

Also, some dolphins have been blowing bubble rings and then swimming through them and playing with them. According to the youtube info, this behavior "is a phenomenon that has intrigued scientists watching dolphins in the wild and now is fascinating millions of guests at SeaWorld Orlando."

Dolphins just seem smart, don’t they?
