    Default How Dolphins say ' I love you '

    With a Bouquet of Seaweed :







    Gift of love: A dolphin goes courting with a strand of seaweed, which his tosses between his fins, tail and nose . She poses coquettishly with her gift, before their love is sealed by mating. Documentary-makers went to extraordinary lengths to capture the dolphins’ mating rituals, using 13 remote-control devices shaped like turtles, tuna, clams and squid in the ocean off the coast of Mozambique.


    A curiously romantic side to these charming marine mammals has been revealed in a stunning new BBC TV series.Documentary crews have been able to observe a male bottlenose dolphin wooing his sweetheart with a garland of seaweed. Courting males will spend hours looking for the longest and most perfect strand of seaweed to present to the objects of their desire. Before handing it over, a hot-blooded dolphin will use the seaweed to show off his prowess: tossing it between his fins, tail and nose. Producer Rob Pilley says: ‘If the female likes what she sees, she will accept the seaweed - and then drape and play with it seductively like a feather boa.’

    Now they are an item, the amorous pair will do the dolphin equivalent of cuddling - stroking each other with their fins - as they twist and spin around each other. Despite the elaborate foreplay, which can last over an hour, the act of love itself does not take long - around three seconds. Females are not one-man-girls either. During the mating season, they can be seduced several times a day by different members of the same pod of young males. Rob says: ‘When sex happens, it’s more like shaking hands - and afterwards the pair will go their separate ways.’
