Dolphin megapod filmed underwater for the first time in pictures

A gathering of 3000-5000 spinner dolphins, known as a megapod, is filmed underwater for the first time for a BBC series, Dolphins Spy in the Pod. Two robotic 'spy creatures' with cameras in their mouths and eyes view the dolphins gathering to socialise in the nutrient-rich waters off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica
Dolphins Spy in the Pod, BBC One, from Thursday 2 January, 8pm

8. I hope, in my next life, ...

... to be a dolphin. The sheer joy of swimming and leaping with a body perfectly designed for it, and a brain with the capacity of reconstructing 3-D images from mimicry of sonar bounce-back must be huge. Then there's their libido... yeow! Yes, I'm hoping I've built up enough karma to earn the "promotion" to dolphin.
