Kinship With All Dolphins

Have you ever been on a date where you have so little in common with the other person that you find yourself asking them 3rd grade questions like "if you could be an animal, what animal would you be?" No? Well try it sometime, it may just turn your night around. Me, I'd choose a dolphin.

They are amazing animals. I have rarely felt more awestruck and humbled than when swimming alongside them in the wild.

If you've never done this before, it's an incredible experience. One of those 1001 must do's before hitting the big jackpot in this game of life. Speaking of which, I've just added lion cuddling, personal jet-flight, and wingsuit gliding to my list.

But what I never knew before about dolphins and just found out (thank you Neal), is that they can do this:

Ok, so humans can do that too...but we can't play with our rings or bounce them through the water. How do dolphins do it? Theories abound, but no one's really sure. The one thing I do know is that it looks really, really fun. They've got to be at least as smart as we are.

So make sure you buy dolphin safe tuna, so that this won't ever happen!
