Who named him Flipper?
Not sure, but that’s his name, and he made another guest appearance during a fishing trip we were on a few days back.
This dolphin guy has been living in the waters off Port Shepstone for quite some time now. He is super social – loves a chat and a sardine.
We have jumped in with him a number of times, and often he will come and grab a sardine right from out of your hand. This day he was a little camera shy though, but you get the picture.
Why he hangs out alone is open to speculation but yeah, sometimes individuals are expelled from a dolphin clan.
Or maybe he just had enough of the rat race and moved out into the wilderness.
Right close to the savage humans?!
His old clan must think he is crazy!
