"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
Priceless. I've seen the video and it's truly amazing, but I hadn't noticed the comments. You'd have to watch the video then read the heartfelt tribute first to get full appreciation for the second comment. All in one big ball of wax, I mean.
It bugs me how everything you hear about dolphins is positive. You almost never hear about how violent they can be to each other and smaller animals. They take a great deal of pleasure (if you catch my drift) from harassing and even killing smaller dolphin species. They're not the gentle ocean angels people make them out to be. There's a good reason that most dolphins in encounter tanks are female. Two words...'excitable' and prehensile.
