Dolphins are considered to be one of the most intellectual animals in the animal kingdom, capable of building complex relationships and communicating by vocal cues or signs.
Mystique, a humpback dolphin, exhibits behavior that elevates this aquatic animal’s intelligence to new heights.
In exchange for nourishment, the clever and intelligent dolphin sends presents from the bottom of the ocean to people.
Mystique is a 29-year-old male who appears to understand that no one can resist a wonderful present, thus he employs them to accomplish his purpose. He generally brings volunteers from the Barnacles Dolphin Center in Tin Can Bay, Queensland (Australia), as well as a variety of ocean bottom presents.
Corals, shells, and ancient bottles, among other things, are the treasures that the lovely Mystique brings as money in return for food. The dolphin is now recognized as a brilliant treasure finder, but the fact is that all he wants is a tasty fish as a reward.
The animal misses the attention it used to receive from visitors, after the Barnacles Dolphin Center closed because to the Covid-19 quarantine.
Barnacles Cafe & Dolphin Feeding employees told Bored Panda:
“Mystique is OK, as long as he keeps everything online, but it’s evident that he lacks the public’s attention. In recent weeks, there has been a lot of boasting.”
Mystique is a very clever dolphin who is also quite devious and always seeking for new methods to attract attention.
According to volunteers at the center:
“When you bring anything in, you’ll be showered with praise and attention, as well as a fish to thank. He is a very clever and compassionate personality, yet he is also a little mischievous.”
The lovely creature is part of a group of seven dolphins, but it is the only one who arrives bearing presents from the sea.
This specific habit is appreciated by everybody, and the volunteers hope that the charming dolphin will continue to offer gifts even after the doors of the swimming center are opened. They are certain that Mystique’s behavior will not alter, and they feel that by meeting more individuals, he will be able to increase the quantity of information he remembers.
Volunteers at the center state:
“He gives us all kinds of items like wooden boards, corals, old glass bottles, sea sponges, and pebbles in all shapes and sizes; he had always brought us gifts, but only since the shutting has he brought us multiple gifts every morning.”
