Doing What Comes Naturally
Our dolphin shows are based on behaviours that dolphins do naturally in the wild. These exercises keep them stimulated and healthy, and they reinforce the bond that the animals have with their trainers. Since it’s impossible to ask an animal that can grow to 198 kilograms to do something they don’t want to do, the trainers spend a lot of time building a relationship of trust with the dolphins—and reward them not just with food, but with tongue rubs, massages and whatever else the individual animals enjoy.
