Divers in Hawaii had an unexpected visitor in the form of a dolphin tangled up in a fishing line.
In a rare and breathtaking example of dolphin intelligence, divers were amazed when a dolphin approached them and appeared to ask for assistance in removing the fishing line it had become tangled up in. Positioning itself in a way that provided the best access to the divers, the dolphin waited while the men carefully removed the fishing line before calmly swimming away.
Dolphins have long been considered one of the most intelligent non-human species on the planet and are thought to possess a level of intelligence similar to that of a 3-year-old child.
"A group of divers had an experience to remember when an injured dolphin swam up to them in desperate need of assistance."
