Oh You Know, Just A Dolphin And A Dog Playing Together
A dog and a dolphin have been spotted splashing around at a Perth beach on Sunday morning.
The dolphin can be seen circling the Labrador, almost as though they were playing a game of chasey.
Rockingham local Brett filmed the unlikely pair, who was told by the dog’s owner that it was the “second time” his dog had engaged with a dolphin at the beach.
Professor Lars Bejder from Murdoch University told Nine News that it was common to see bottlenose dolphins in shallow areas.
“When they come across something novel, they want to check it out.”
He said that bottlenose dolphins have a “very complex social structure within their own species”, but interactions with other animals remain “relatively unknown”.
