Dolphins are great. One of the recent articles have them saving some whales who needed to get out of a bay or something. They are so smart.

You hear the stories of dolphins saving humans from sharks. It amazes me that a huge, great white won't attack even one of the dolphins. The shark is bigger with a powerful bite!

Dolphins will often drive sharks from an area. They are also known to rescue swimmers in distress as well as push drowning victims back to shore. They are such amazing creatures.

Dolphins are amazing animals. I wish there was a way to understand them better. Reminds me of the Far Side cartoon where scientists are trying to understand dolphin language. On the blackboard is a list of sounds they are able to decipher. The one listening says something along the lines of - "Here's another one of those sounds "Ah blas ess pan yol" (Hablas espanol?).

What a nice story. I think we only know the tip of the ice berg regarding dolphins. They are probably capable of much more than we give them credit.
Bless them.

I have heard of this before that Dolphins will chase away sharks and in fact kill them. My father told me when he was in the Navy and they saw the ship was being followed by Dolphins they knew it would be safe to swim. This is a good story, I liked it very much. I swam with Dolphins while in Tahiti and it was such a wonderful experience

Dolphins may overtake dogs as mans best friend if this keeps up! There have been a lot of studies on the intelligence of dolphins, and, apparently it is pretty high. This is one lucky surfer!

Dolphins are so amazing! I loved this story and found it so touching that these dolphins would do this for a human that was a complete stranger to them. This boy is very lucky and brave - I don't think I would ever surf again!
