Dolphins are considered to be one of the most intelligent animals in the animal kingdom; they are capable of developing complex relationships and can communicate through both spoken and nonverbal signals.
Mystique, a humpback dolphin, demonstrates the intellect of this aquatic species to a new degree.
In exchange for a small amount of food, the clever and intelligent dolphin brings presents from the ocean’s depths to people.
Mystique is a 29-year-old man who appears to understand that no one can resist a wonderful gift, thus he employs them to further his objectives. He brings a variety of presents from the ocean floor to volunteers from the Barnacles Dolphin Center in Tin Can Bay, Queensland, Australia.
Gifts like as corals, shells, and old bottles are among the items that the charming Mystique accepts as money in exchange for food. The dolphin has earned a reputation as a great treasure finder, but the fact is that he is merely looking forward to his reward: a tasty fish.
Because of the Covid-19 quarantine, the Barnacles Dolphin Center closed its doors, the animal misses the attention it used to get from guests.
Barnacles Cafe & Dolphin Feeding employees told Bored Panda:
“Mystique is good, as long as she keeps everything online, but it’s evident that she misses the limelight. In recent weeks, it’s become a major spectacle.”
Mystique is not only a smart dolphin, but also a cunning one that is continuously seeking for new methods to attract attention.
Volunteers at the center stated:
“When you make a contribution, you will be showered with praise and attention, followed with a fish to thank.” He has a loving and intelligent nature, but he’s 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.
