Dolphins Discovered Playing Football

by Ben Cohen

While studying bottle nose dolphins off of the coast of Wales, Marine Biologists were stunned to discover the sea mammals playing their own version of football — with jellyfish. The game consists of traveling at high speed while flipping the jellyfish with their tails back and forth between each other. The game playing gives fascinating new insight into the complex social lives of the species, regarded as the most intelligent animals after ourselves.
