The Post – Sea World’s Bubble-blowing dolphins

March 18, 2009

It’s not as silly as it sounds, by the way. The dolphins apparently execute a considerable amount of precision to create these bubble rings. In fact, instead of plain old bubbles that would just rise to the surface, these cylindrical rings stay under the surface and allow the dolphins to push them around, stretch them, play with them.

The reporter noted that researchers were speculating as to why more female dolphins do this than males…..I can just hear the male/female jokes coming on that one….   🙂 Anyway, enjoy!
