An abnormally large group of 100,000 dolphins has been sighted swimming off the coast of California.

The Inquisitr said:

A massive pod of dolphins was spotted off the San Diego coast on Thursday by a boat captain. The captain, Joe Dutra, of Hornblower Cruises, reported seeing a “super mega-pod” of common dolphins around noon when he was on his daily tour.

I realize dolphins are social animals, but never I thought they congregate into one large group until this story. Dolphins are interesting animals to shown an intelligence akin to a 2-year old human, and are able to "speak" with each other by a mechanism in their "blow holes". And dolphins proved compatiable to humans in captivity: when any person comes up to the pool tank of dolphins, they often turn its' head or swim all the way towards the person.

Groups come together when they are all heading for the same food source, so either there was as overly abundant source of food in the area or food is getting so hard to find that they were all swarming to the only source locatable.

That's my thought too.  Let's hope we're wrong.

Maybe they were going to meet some aliens like in "Cocoon" or maybe they already did!
