The photo below appears in today’s Daily Mail. Temporarily banish any question (as I have) over whether it’s right or wrong to keep these beautiful creatures in captivity. The fact remains that they are a joy for us to see close up. It’s believed that they are exhibiting play behaviour by blowing bubbles which they then break into smaller bubbles by biting them. The smaller bubbles rise rapidly to the surface and the dolphins occasionally like to swim through them. Although I may not think it’s right to keep dolphins in captivity, it’s nonetheless a photo that makes me smile. They look like a bunch of pals, happily posing for the camera.
