As we all know… dolphins are without a doubt one of the smartest animals in the ocean. Like they’re sea-riously smart. Dolphins have the ability to effortlessly hunt almost any sea creature… BUT every now and again, one of their prey will say, “NO WAY!”
On a recent outing with Port Macquarie Cruise Adventures in New South Wales, a photographer named Jodie Lowe recorded a stupendously rare moment. A dolphin, nicknamed Grandma, was caught in an epicly twisted battle with an octopus… another one of Mother Nature’s little geniuses.
If you look closely at the photo, you can see the octopus actually attempting to block and plug the dolphin’s blowhole. WHAT?! That’s a downright dirty move.
The Adventure company took to Facebook to share Ms. Lowe’s incredible photos:
The cetacean twisted with the tangled attacker and even breached the water several times in an attempt to free itself. Thankfully, grandma was eventually able to shake her eight-armed opponent loose and ended up with a belly full of octopus. YUM.
