This week was a week filled with interesting dolphin behavior. Being from a very landlocked town in Ontario, Canada, I am thrilled every time our turtle trips are sprinkled with dolphin sightings. To say that I was beyond thrilled this week to see a pod of 5 dolphins playing and socializing near Morgan Beach is an understatement. Though dolphins are known for their playful nature, males can become aggressive towards other males during mating season. What I originally thought was a pod of dolphins playfully splashing through the water looked to be something more as I saw that the origin of the splashing was actually two dolphins colliding with one another; a behaviour often seen in competing males. Though I could see no clear victor, the battle will likely have continued until the dominant male dolphin became clear to the on looking female dolphin and the loser retreated in defeat.
