Turks Dolphin report.

Hi All
I included a quick clip of JoJo circling slowly around our boat. He has been doing it for as long as three hours at a time. He is letting his cuts heal. JoJo also circles buoys or boats when he sleeps. Dolphins rest 1/2 their brain while the other half stays awake watching for predators and deciding when to breath. Unlike us dolphins are voluntary breathers. They need to be awake to breath. Notice in the clip JoJo surfaces hunches his back then looks up. He has vision above and below the surface. Perhaps he wants to know who’s on the boat!
