This is a 1992 56-minute documentary about the seceret life of dolphins.
Do you know that dolphins are one of the few animals that enter into political relationships?
Male dolphins battle viciously for social and mating status.
The film offers a rare glimpse into the private lives of dolphins with amazing scientific evidence collected over nearly 30 years.
It is quite interesting that there is a remarkable "dolphin colony" at Sarasota Bay in Florida.
Each dolphin has been tracked, tested and recorded over two decades and three generations.
It is also amusing to know that wild dolphins make a daily visit a remote beach on Shark Bay off Australia's western coast and
mingle with people of all ages.
A mother dolphin even shows off her newly-born baby dolphin.
It is an amazing, amusing and thought-provoking documentary.
