Dolphins playing catch with a puffer fish off South Australia.

This is how dolphins play ‘catch'! 

July 2010. For anyone who ever wondered what dolphins get up to when they're bored, the crew of a dolphin watching and swimming boat in South Australia, Temptation Sailing, can now provide the answer.

A pod of dolphins was witnessed from the company's 58 foot catamaran off the coast at Glenelg harassing puffer fish until they puffed themselves up and floated to the surface.

The dolphins then tossed the puffer fish to each other, similar to a game of catch! In this instance, there were around seven puffer fish and four dolphins involved in the game. www.dolphinboat.com.au
