One of out favorite things in the world is unlikely interspecies relationships, so unlikely and so beautiful. We've seen many of those in pictures before, but to see one in video is always an absolute treat. 

This adorable doggo named Zyzz hangs out with his owners on the boat all the time, to the point that they consider Zyzz part of the crew. And he loves swimming. The owners say that they never pushed him toward it, he just always felt the pull of the water and is always eager to jump in. Surprise, surprise, another creature is living in the water - an adorable dolphin that the boat crew calls Jojo. 

The dog and dolphin get along like best buds, and you can tell that they really enjoy each other. Zyzz is always excited about Jojo, sometimes dipping his head in the water to try to see better what's going on, and Jojo sometimes splashes Zyzz with its tail. Their relationship is one of the most wholesome we've seen in a while.

Whoever said that hippos can't be graceful? Seems like Disney had it right in Disney's Fantasia! Those hippos can absolutely move with the grace of a ballerina! 

Turns out, hippos can do whale jumps too! Watch Hippo Fiona go crazy in their outdoor pool and celebrate with some joyful jumps. 

It totally makes sense now that whales are the closest living relative to hippos. You'll see.

Adorable Dolphin Brings Humans Gifts From The Bottom Of The Ocean

That's it, we're moving down to Australia so we can hang out with Mystique, the humpback dolphin from Tin Can Bay on Queensland's Cooloola Coast.

Mystique is a unique pod who had recently developed quite a unique quirk -- a habit of bringing volunteers at the Barnacles Café and Dolphin Feeding centre an array of items each day! Apparently, this unusual habit began during the coronavirus pandemic while the tourists were staying home. 

Mystique is a 29-year-old male dolphin who has often displayed giving behavior but not to this extent.  Dolphin feeding volunteer Lyn McPherson said, "One male dolphin brings in objects on his rostrum, or beak, and then he carefully presents them to us." 

She says they reward him with some fish, "We haven't trained him, but he has trained us to do this."He gets under it [and] if he drops it too far out, or we say 'come on, that's not good enough', then he gets underneath it and brings it to us."The items have included bottles, big bits of timber, shells, and wood, which are brought in on his beak."We swear he has a collection waiting to bring to us," Ms McPherson said.

Since we've been closed to the public he has been doing it more and more. Sometimes he will bring 10, one at a time, and he will line them up as he has to get fish."

Now, that's a smart dolphin.

This is such a magical sight to behold! 

A group of dolphins are seen here off of Newport Beach, California, gliding through the red tide and created a neon, bio-luminescent glow. 

Pure magic. If there's something else to add to that bucket list, it would be to see this.

This Dolphin Turned a Jellyfish Into a Beanbag

These gents were enjoying a nice day on the water when they saw a sight that they and most everyone will never see again. A dolphin entered the bay near these Danish sailors, and they watched and followed as it literally threw and caught the jellyfish in the air. At one point it even lost the living beanbag, but soon found it and continued on with its game. Pretty sure PETA will file a complaint against the dolphin for animal cruelty, but it's unlikely to get very far between the judge's guffaws.

Check out the full story of this juggling dolphin, and find out exactly the Danes had to say about the whole experience.
