Queensland cafe in Australia has claimed that dolphins have been bringing gifts ashore to people who visit them as they have been missing the interaction with them, writes thepetneeds
Mystique, a male humpback dolphin, has been bringing many items ashore amid the COVID-19 lockdown, according to local media. The 29-year-old dolphin now brings a daily selection of gifts at Dolphin Feeding centre and Barnacles Café Tin Can Bay.
The gifts include coral, wood, shells, barnacled bottles, and other items from the sea bed. A volunteer who feeds the dolphin, Lyn McPherson, said that Mystique brings in objects beak or rostrum and presents the gifts to them in a carful way.
It has been said that Mystique, who has first appeared with his mom in the area in 1991, is the only dolphin of the 7-dolphin pod to give the gifts. An expert in dolphin behaviour called Barry McGovern said that it was unlikely that dolphins were giving gifts but it was possible as they missed humans. How adorable!
