Sneaky Dolphin Splashes Unsuspecting Kids

There are a lot of fun things to do at the Indy Zoo. During our trip last week, I was asked by one of the ticketing agents if my daughter would like to be a "Junior Dolphin Trainer" during the dolphin show. She'd get to help out the actual dolphin trainer by issuing a bunch of hand-motion commands to the dolphin. All for the low, low price of $10. I figured, if my daughter was helping the trainer out, shouldn't the Indy Zoo be paying us rather than the other way around? All kidding aside, I felt that the Junior Dolphin Trainer schtick was worth the money. The folks involved in the show go out of their way to make the kids feel important and special and all of the kids involved seemed to enjoy getting so close to the dolphins.

The dolphin trainer played a neat little trick on the kids during the show. The children were going through the hand motions and then turned to wave at the audience. The dolphin trainer had prepared for this and, as the children turned their backs to the dolphin and waved, the dolphin jumped up out of the water and splashed the kids. Have a look at the video below:
