Dolphin and Pelican Swim Together Peacefully in West Australia

A mother captured in an Instagram video the moment when a dolphin and a pelican swam alongside each other peacefully in Monkey Mia, Western Australia, on January 27.

Laura Gibson was on a dolphin-feeding trip when she spotted the pair cruising along in the water. She told Storyful that unlike what the video seemed to show, the two species don’t generally seem to get along very well.

“The dolphins don’t really like the pelicans. The pelicans try to steal the fish from the dolphins,” Gibson said. Credit: Laura Gibson via Storyful
