Hawaiian spinner dolphins stick together in families, or pods, where they take care of each other and socialize. A tight knit group, dolphins literally sleep with one eye open while swimming alongside a pod member doing the same, so each can watch out for predators or threats. Sometimes it’s hard to see where one body ends and the other beings when they interact in this way. Here, two smaller, adolescent dolphins swim among the pod learning the ways of the species.
