An adorable little toddler and a dolphin became friends while playing catch! The unlikely pair was filmed at the edge of a pool where the dolphin lives at a marine life park in Koktebel City, Crimea. The dolphin started the game by throwing the ball from the water towards the boy.
The little boy and the dolphin tossed the ball back a forth countless times. The boy was clearly having a wonderful time and the dolphin seemed to be happy to play with the boy and the ball.
When the boy was overly enthusiastic with his throw and the ball would fly into the pool, the dolphin would work his way backwards into the pool to retrieve it.
Then, the dolphin would return the ball to the boy by hopping up onto the side of the pool and tossing the bright pink ball towards the boy. The dolphin would wait patiently for the boy to retrieve the ball and fling it back his way.
At one point, the boy was taking too long for the dolphin’s liking so he started to squeak until the boy continued the game.
Overall an adorable experience so glad this one was caught on camera!
