The Wild Side

Genre: Adventure
Actors: Jenn Brown

very few wild creatures

that will kill for reasons

other than hunger

Swimming in formation

a group of adult spotteds

rush in to intercede

In the flurry of threats

the calf escapes

to the surface

Bottlenose are even

more prone to clashing

with members

of their own species

These males in the

Bahamas bear many scars

including those

from fierce battles

A first sign of impending

trouble is "jaw clapping"

a clear audible threat

When fights break out

they're marked

by head ramming


and blows from

powerful flukes

Many dolphins have

evolved their own

sometimes brutal

aspects of society

Shark Bay

in Western Australia

where vast sea

grass beds support

a large community

of bottlenose dolphins

Here an international

team of scientists


dolphin aggression

The waters of Shark

Bay are in the throes

of what appears

to be a gang fight

Groups of males are observed

chasing down other males

It can go on for hours

and cover miles of territory

The battles are over females

part of an extremely complex social

system only now being unraveled

by Dr. Richard Connor from the

University of Massachusetts

He's spent his professional life

studying dolphins in the wild

And his work has changed

our image of the dolphin

I think in the 1960's

the myth was generated

that dolphins were

all sweetness and light

And almost incapable

of aggression

At least that was

the public perception

carried on a large

part until today

Dolphins are capable of

a lot of aggression

They can be quite nasty

depending on the circumstance

They are complex

intelligent social mammals

and that carries

with it a range of behaviors from

the nice to the not so nice

Just like in our own species

And like our own species

dolphins are

highly individualistic
