The creators of Dolphins: Spy in the Pod, a series produced for BBC One, placed spy cameras hidden in fake turtles, fish and squid to film 900 hours of footage showing dolphins in their natural habitats. What they caught on film, you may never expect!

“Young dolphins were seen carefully manipulating a certain kind of puffer fish which, if provoked, releases a nerve toxin. Though large doses of the toxin can be deadly, in small amounts it is known to produce a narcotic effect, and the dolphins appeared to have worked out how to make the fish release just the right amount.
After chewing the puffer gently and passing it round, they began acting most peculiarly, hanging around with their noses at the surface as if fascinated by their own reflection.

This sounds like total Coral-reefer MADNESS type shit! Ursula The Sea Witch is totally behind this — Next we’re gonna hear she’s turned Ariel into some sort of junkie like Christiane F!
