Dolphins Catch Fish Using “Mud Nets” [VIDEO]


Dolphins learn easier way to catch fish by encircling them with a “net” made of mud.

This group of dolphins figured out they could make a fake net by stirring up mud from the ocean floor around groups of fish.

The fish then leap straight to the hungry dolphins mouths as they try to escape.

Dolphins are considered one of the smartest animals on the planet. Their ability to work together and solve problems with near-human intelligence is astounding.

I just want to know what event lead the dolphins to figure out they could make that “mud net” around the fish. Makes you wonder if they learned it from fisherman using real nets and watching the fish try to jump over them.
