Bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) playing with a child at a public aquarium. The bottlenose dolphin is highly intelligent, and in the wild it works in teams, plans hunting strategies and has an intricate social system. In captivity, its intelligence allows it to easily learn tricks and games. Dolphin society is violent and volatile, but dolphins seem to be gentle and curious with humans, both in the wild and captivity. Photographed at Marineland, Antibes, France.
