Creature Feature (11): Wales News - Dolphins use Jellyfish in ocean football

We watched these dolphins (in the photos above and immediately below) in the Moray Firth,
near Fort George, Scotland, in September 2009



We spotted these Bottlenose Dolphins (in the photo below) off Pembrokeshire, Wales


Those who read my blog regularly will know that I enjoy keeping up with Professor P. Brain's ecological and environmental discoveries. This story about Bottlenose Dolphins particularly caught my eye.

You're so lucky to view these magnificent creatures up close like this. Wonderful pictures. Though I don't think the jellyfish enjoy being tossed as footballs. Have a great day.

We've never seen dolphins roud the Scottish coasts.

Fun that they play football with jellyfish. Not so much fun for the jellyfish I guess...

How amazing! I'd like to think the jelly-fish enjoyed the experience, but that may be stretching reality!
