WATCH: Whales play with dolphins in ‘game of tag’
In a planet where more than 70 percent of its surface is blanketed by oceans, there are certainly numerous aquatic creatures and marine activities that are yet to be discovered, including this one caught on this impressive video.
Facebook page Life in the Hawaiian Islands posted a delightful one-minute video featuring two humpback whales skating underwater and playing a game of tag with a dolphin and her baby at a Hawaiian coast. During the game, the mother dolphin even fed her infant before resuming the game.
“Videos like these reveal the true nature of these intelligent, inquisitive and playful animals. This is where these animals belong, not in a pool 1/10,00th the size of the area they would cover in one day in the wild,” the caption stated.
Facebook users who watched the video found it “amazing” and beautiful.”
“This just thrills my soul,” one user wrote.
Although the staggering video was uploaded in April, the video got nearly 444,000 views, 7,700 likes and reactions, and 19,000 shares. The trending clip was recently featured in several media outlets a few days ago, such as Huffington Post and KHON 2 News. Gianna Francesca Catolico
