Lovely dolphins

Dolphins are one of the most beautiful animals in the area. They are elegant, friendly and not to mention extremely smart. I’ve seen several dolphin shows and it never ceased to amaze me how clever these little guys are. The director just sits there with his whistle, blows it and off the dolphin does, gracing us with his flips and dives.

One of the neatest things I’ve heard of is swimming with the dolphins. That has to be such as awesome experience. I once swam with stingrays and while it was a neat experience- I was still fearful of them the entire time and they really are not pretty to look at. They are actually creepy- thinking back, I don’t know what would ever really possess me to take a swim with them. Anyway, I know one person who did swim with dolphins and they told me that they are very friendly creatures up close- as they are at a distance.

I do feel bad for the dolphins that are kept for shows, because I am big on animal freedom and I feel that every animal should be free to live in its proper home. All dolphins should be living in the sea- where they belong, with their fellow dolphin friends. But, as you all know, it’s going to be a long time until that happens and dolphins are given good living conditions compared to other types of captive animals. They seem to be quite comfortable with their lives, so it is not a huge issue for me. ns
