Many dolphins swim together – Level 3
Now here’s something you don’t see every day at the beach, a dolphin stampede. More than a hundred of the mammals were spotted in New Zealand’s Wellington harbour.
There were even traffic jams in the area as people stopped their cars to have a look. Dolphins normally live in pods of 12 but when there is a lot of food around, super pods of up to thousands can merge.
Interesting words: stampede (sudden hectic movement of many animals), spot (see), pod (group), merge (join together).
