dolphins feeding in charleston

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I have an awesome video to show y'all. On the Friday we got engaged, our friends took a boat out through a river near Charleston. We started seeing tons of dolphins, and it was incredible. Then we saw something AMAZING! We saw the dolphins feeding, which apparently is really rare to see! They carouse a bunch of fish against the shore, then they leap at them with their mouth open, beach themselves on the shore and do a flip turn back into the water. We saw it happen about fifteen times. It was so neat! Check it out.

Pretty cool. The only dolphins in the world that exhibit this behavior live right there on the Edisto river and 50 miles north and south of it. No where else is this behavior seen by dolphins. Err...porpoises. You know, Flipper.
