Dolphins are considered one of the most intellectual animals in the animal kingdom; they are capable of developing complex relationships and can communicate through both spoken and nonverbal signals.
The behavior of a humpback dolphin dubbed Mystique demonstrates the animal’s intellect on a whole new level.
In exchange for food, the clever and intelligent dolphin sends presents from the ocean floor to people.
Mystique is a 29-year-old man who seems to understand that no one can resist a wonderful gift, thus he employs them to achieve his objectives. He frequently brings a variety of presents from the ocean floor to volunteers from the Barnacles Dolphin Center in Tin Can Bay, Queensland, Australia.
Corals, shells, and old bottles, among other things, are the treasures that the charming Mystique offers in return for food. The dolphin is now regarded as a brilliant treasure finder, but the fact is that he is simply looking forward to his reward: tasty fish.
Because of Covid-19’s confinement, the Barnacles Dolphin Center closed its doors, the animal misses the attention it used to get from visitors.
The workers at Barnacles Cafe & Dolphin Feeding told Bored Panda:
“Mystique is OK, as long as she keeps everything online, but it’s evident that she doesn’t have the public’s attention. In recent weeks, the program has been fantastic.
Mystique is not only a smart dolphin, but she is also a clever one that is continuously seeking for new methods to draw attention to herself.
Volunteers at the center stated the following:
“When you make a contribution, you will be showered with praise and attention, followed with a fish to thank.” He has a loving and clever nature, yet he is also a little naughty.
The beautiful creature is one of seven dolphins in a group, but it is the only one who is known for bringing bearing presents from the sea.
This specific habit is appreciated by everybody, and the volunteers hope that the gentle dolphin will continue to send gifts even after the aquatic center’s doors open. They are certain that Mystique’s conduct will not alter, and they feel that by seeing more individuals, she will be able to gather more information.
