In the last couple of weeks, two amazing videos were captured that show some really interesting dolphin behavior.
The following clip shows a massive “dolphin stampede” witnessed by tourists aboard a whale-watching ship off the coast of California.
This next video only features one dolphin, but I think it is even more amazing. The unfortunate creature has some fishing line and a hook stuck around its fin. The line is twisted around so that it is restricting its movement. The dolphin approaches a group of scuba divers, apparently seeking their help. Watch the patient dolphin as one of the divers removes the line.
We are lucky to be able to see dolphins frequently when we visit the coast here in Florida, but I’ve never witnessed anything like either of these spectacles, either above water or below. Have you ever dived with dolphins, or seen a dolphin stampede?
