Comments

In various cultures, the Dolphin symbolizes happiness, power and protection. The Spinner dolphin, sometimes called the long-snouted dolphin, is famous for its acrobatic displays as it leaps out of the water. The dolphin can spin multiple times in one leap, and scientists believe the mammal uses this to communicate, as well as remove small fish that may latch on. These dolphins have been recorded to fully spin seven times during a single leap, and create huge splashes when they land back in the water.
