We might as well ask whether we humans are breaking the rules of dolphin society as consider whether Moko is going bad.
Moko has just gone wild – as she always was. Bottlenosed dolphins are intelligent and sociable, but they’re not part of our human society, even when they interact with us.
Moko, who commonly comes around to play with boats and with people swimming at local beaches, clearly has no problems with the idea of socializing with other species. She is a wild dolphin, but stories of the rescue of human beings by wild dolphins have been told for centuries. This is the first time a wild dolphin has been witnessed coming to the assistance of a non-human species.
