The genuine overwhelming enthusiasm is everything in this video.
Times are tough and we're always in need of a cute and wholesome compilation of animals! Either it is in the form of memes, tweets, or just photos and gifs, it's always very much needed and very much appreciated.
It's Sunday and we can take this time to relax and dive into a bunch of animal gifs that'll have our hearts melting in the best way possible! There's honestly nothing quite like animals for that pick-me-up, they just seem to hit you right where you need it most -- in the feels.
Thank you to all the animals in the world, we would be so lonely and lost without you all.
That's it, we're moving down to Australia so we can hang out with Mystique, the humpback dolphin from Tin Can Bay on Queensland's Cooloola Coast.
Mystique is a unique pod who had recently developed quite a unique quirk -- a habit of bringing volunteers at the Barnacles Café and Dolphin Feeding centre an array of items each day! Apparently, this unusual habit began during the coronavirus pandemic while the tourists were staying home.
Mystique is a 29-year-old male dolphin who has often displayed giving behavior but not to this extent. Dolphin feeding volunteer Lyn McPherson said, "One male dolphin brings in objects on his rostrum, or beak, and then he carefully presents them to us."
She says they reward him with some fish, "We haven't trained him, but he has trained us to do this."He gets under it [and] if he drops it too far out, or we say 'come on, that's not good enough', then he gets underneath it and brings it to us."The items have included bottles, big bits of timber, shells, and wood, which are brought in on his beak."We swear he has a collection waiting to bring to us," Ms McPherson said.
Since we've been closed to the public he has been doing it more and more. Sometimes he will bring 10, one at a time, and he will line them up as he has to get fish."
Now, that's a smart dolphin.

"I was shaking of happiness." That says everything you need to say about this envy-inducing post. Whoever this Imgur user is, has found their own backyard of joy. Of course, some of us can't go beachcombing for treasures cause of where we live; but if you live anywhere close to the water this hobby is worth serious consideration! All you have to lose is time, gain is some potential gold. You had me sold at the idea of gold.
