See how dolphins are taught to play at Selwo Marina
Zeus and Steve are the stars of the show at Selwo Marina. / M. J. M.
Animal trainers at Selwo Marina are teaching two male dolphins, Zeus and Steve, which are seven and four years old, tricks and acrobatics at the region's only dolphinarium. The trainers are teaching the dolphins to obey orders by rewarding them when they do something well, and so far the mammals have learned to jump several metres in the air to catch a ball, and lift up their tail so that blood samples can be taken.

For dolphin shows to be perfect, the creatures must be trained from a very early age so that they become familiar with humans. This is not a very difficult feat as long as they are trained every day. Two-year-old Naya, the youngest of the pod, has already learned some impressive tricks.

The life expectancy of dolphins is approximately 40 years, and at Selwo Marina, they are taught how to do various tricks, and even how to sing.

As from today, Zeus and Steve will be wowing members of the public at Selwo Marina with tricks such as jumping through hoops and catching balls in a half hour show. But enjoying dolphin spectacles isn't the only option available at Selwo, visitors can also watch how a baby crocodile is fed, or find out how many teeth a marine lion has. More than 1,500,000 people have visited Selwo Marina since its opening in 2002.
