There’s no doubt that dolphins are the smartest and most intelligent marine creatures in the world. With evolution, these cute and endearing creatures have adapted themselves to live in harmony with humans. Needless to say, they truly love interacting with humans, and they do this in various fun and affectionate ways. This is also such a wholesome story where an adorable dolphin that loves human interaction approaches humans in a unique, loving, and impressive manner.
Mystique is a 29-year-old male humpback dolphin that’s loved by everybody including netizens. This is because of his unique habit of bringing gifts from the depths of oceans to befriend humans. From the bottom of the sea near the Barnacles Café and Dolphin Feeding center in Cooloola Coast, Queensland, Australia, Mystique picks up various gifts from his snout. These include bottles, corals, and shells. Lyn McPherson, a volunteer feeder, states that no one has trained Mystique to pick up these ‘gifts’ from the ocean. In return for these gifts, volunteers will feed him fish.
Mystique has seven more dolphins in his pod at the center. However, out of them, he’s the only one that brings gifts to people. Sometimes, Mystique is accompanied by another male dolphin, hoping for some fresh fish treats. The staff at Barnacles Café and Dolphin Feeding center states that during the covid-19 pandemic, Mystique hunted more treasures and visited more frequently. This is probably because there were no visitors during this time as the feeding center shut down. After the business reopened on May 16th, over 200 visitors started coming in every day, witnessing the lovely gifts that Mystique offers.
