    Nice dolphins. I've seen dolphins in wild just once, in Sochi, from far distance.

    It probably won't come as a surprise that they are my favourite creature.

    They get used in recon missions too:

    It looks similar to a seal, but it has big teeth (2) sticking out), and it has... moustache, or something...

    Sealions probably... unlikely, those are very dangerous to approach... at least the males. I may have a picture of the females though.

    Yeah, sounds like what we in Norway call "hvalross".

    After reading some of the articles about the "sniffer dolphin" program, one gets the impression that they get a "charge" from teaming with humans. And please note, there are no leashes restraining them and the picture shows miles of open sea behind the dolphin. They are probably smarter than we are, and if they stay around, it is probably their choice.

    And that device is a camera which the dolphin uses to show anomolous things it finds, usually on or around the hulls of ships that it is inspecting.

    They are experimenting with the human kind, like sometimes you let an ant climb onto your hands.

    Well... we had a theory at the time that Oileen (that dolphin I showed earlier) was the xenobiologist version of a dolphin...
