Breaking dolphin news! Scientists have discovered dolphins use coral for skincare due to their antioxidant properties. Who would’ve thought dolphins held the secret to healing skin?
Angela Ziltener, a marine biologist who swam into them sure did! Dr Flipper observed dolphins in the Northern Red Sea in Egypt rubbing their themselves up against coral…and after some lengthy analysis, it’s believed they do this to self-medicate skin conditions.
They can be picky about which coral to use though, as the research team also found that dolphins would line up behind each other to wait their turn for the very best coral.
These intelligent creatures continue to inspire and surprise us!
