Wild Dolphin Asks Diver to Rescue Him from Fishing Line

Dolphins are one of the world’s most intelligent creatures, but they lack hands with opposable thumbs. Luckily, this wild dolphin knew where to find someone to help.

Dive instructor Keller Laros was with a manta ray night dive tour off the Big Island of Hawai’i when a bottlenose dolphin appeared out of the dark trailing a fishing line hooked into his fin. After circling the divers, the dolphin swam over to Keller and waited patiently for him to remove the line. There is no doubt the dolphin understood and appreciated Keller’s help!
