Dolphins Give Christmas Gifts Too

New research reveals wild dolphins bring people all kinds of seafood as gifts.


From Discovery Channel News

On 23 occasions over the past several years, wild dolphins were observed giving gifts to humans at the Tangalooma Island Resort in Australia. The gifts included eels, tuna, squid, an octopus and an assortment of many other types of different fin fish. While these gifts might not be your choice for a gift to find underneath your Christmas tree, some of the items that were offered to humans are highly valued food sources for cetaceans such as dolphins.

A report about this behavior was published earlier this month in Anthrozoös: A Multidisciplinary Journal of the Interactions of People & Animals.
