Moko the friendly dolphin is going to great lengths to keep his playmates – leaving a couple of surf ski riders up the river without a paddle.
John Allen snapped Moko making off with the paddle and said he was amazed at the mammal’s dexterity.
”Every time they managed to get hold of it he’d start trying to knock them off their skis till they let go of it, then he’d grab it and disappear under the water for about 30 seconds, and then you’d see it come up on its end like that.
”He’s obviously very intelligent.”
