Amazing Animals

It isn’t just humans who get a finny itch on their backs, but dolphins too!

This set of photos show a helpful dolphin using its snout to give it’s pal’s back a good scratch.

Steve Truluck, 46, captured the images on June 20 at Hopeman’s Harbour in Elgin, Scots.

The window cleaning owner is an amateur photographer who is lucky enough to see these adorable sea mammals weekly.

He said: “I was hoping to see some mischief and they didn’t disappoint.

“The dolphin on the right was jumping up and seemingly fell on top of the other as it came down.

“It looks like it is scratching the other ones back.”
