Deep sea creatures

December 3, 2012 - Karin Elton
Two dolphin stories are in the news this week. One told about a dolphin, an entertainer at SeaWorld in Orlando, Fla., grabbing the paper carton that a young girl was holding which had contained fish. The girl’s hand got bitten in the process.

In the other AP story, it said trained Navy seals, I mean dolphins, will no longer be used for tracking down underwater mines. Robots will take over that duty. The dolphins, which spent seven years of training for their missions, will be reassigned to other duties such as port security and retrieving objects from the sea floor.

Here I thought dolphins were only those friendly creatures that like to leap into the air out of the ocean with slight smiles on their faces.
