    I wanted to share this with you guys, I posted it over on the garden forum but you all need to see it, too!

    This is from a Usenet posting I found today - it's truly wonderful!

    Dolphin Bubbles (links to a YouTube video)

    Some background info on the ability.

    More Dolphin info

    Rather amazing, IMO.. Sad that they're still slaughtered in masses in
    Japan.

    Reinbeau - is anything Off Topic in the Me, My Chickens, My Family category? I think of it as the junk drawer of the BYC home! Whatever doesn't have a designated place elsewhere always fits in here. Speaking of which, what's in your junk drawer?

    On the dolphin subject....not fair! to us users on boondocks dial up! [​IMG] I can't view it!
    I think dolphins are totally amazing. Did you know their skeleton is very much like ours? Inside their flippers they have elongated bones fused together that resemble the bones of a human hand. In their tail, same thing. Bones fused together that resemble a human foot. Just FYI.

    Thanks Reinbeau, that is beautiful!!

    We had some amazing encounters with dolphins when we took our 2-year sailing trip. They come to play in the bow wake of our sailboat and some get really interested in US if we go up on the bow and talk to them. They roll over to look up at us!! I even had one swim back to where I was reaching my hand down towards the water, and he kept leaping up directly under my down-stretched hand with his dorsal fin right under it... pretty obviously wanting to make contact: we did touch a few times, amazing..... here's a link to a little video we took one day off of Belize (the videos start when you roll you mouse over them, so scroll down without touching any others or you have to wait for them to finish before playing another..) http://www.sailzora.com/movies.htm#Belize%20Dolphins%20Movies
