Dolphins in Scotland Toss Around and Kill Two Porpoises "Just For Fun"

Think all dolphins are sweet like Flipper? Think again!

A recent encounter during which a number dolphins tossed around two porpoises was captured on camera and shows a different side to the aquatic animal.

Experts at the Scottish Marine Animal Strandings Scheme said, "once the porpoise is dead, the dolphins lose interest in it, so they do it just for fun. They don't really compete for food, and they don't eat them so nobody really knows why exactly it happens."

Scottish Marine Animal Strandings Scheme also revealed on their Facebook page that the animals, that are widely considered as some of the most intelligent creatures but also tend to be as socially complex as humans, are are even capable of eating the young ones of their own species.

Not too sure we want to go swimming with them any more!
