Dolphin Masturbates With Dead Fish (VIDEO)

Ah dolphins. They’re just like us!

They grieve, communicate and have excellent memories.

And, they masturbate.

Almost there: The dolphin approaches the point of no return

OK so masturbating with a dead fish is not exactly common among us landlubbers… (let's not rule it out completely– earlier this week we brought you news of a man enjoying himself with the nozzle of a fire extinguisher), but this dolphin looks like its having the time of its life. (Look at that smile!)

The footage was uploaded to YouTube in December by user alexandros malikides, who claims to have spotted the action during a wholesome, family visit to the zoo.

And it has seen a spike in views thanks to a recent post by i09.

At last glance it had ratcheted up an impressive half million views. That's half a million people logging into YouTube to watch a dolphin bringing himself off.

And that’s all we have to say about that.
