The dolphin choreographed show.


Humans have trained dolphins to perform various acts.

But the dolphins from Sea World Orlando's Dolphin Cove have learned on their own to artfully create air bubble rings and play with them.

It started when the curators noticed a bottlenose dolphin at Dolphin Cove had learned to expel air from its blowhole. With a flick of its head, the dolphin then created a circle of air -- a silvery bubble ring.

Curators then saw the dolphin using its nose to twist, spin and re-shape the ring, sometimes biting a bigger ring to make a smaller one.

Then more dolphins at the facility's habitat learned to create the bubble rings.


The staff at Dolphin Cove say that most of the playful mammals who display the behavior are females this may be because male dolphins are preoccupied with socializing with each other.

Are the dolphins doing this to entertain the people who come to watch them?

This performance is certainly far superior to the human choreographed dolphin shows.

When I saw this on National Geographic channel I remembered a
Hymn I learned in childhood……


All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.
