Large Pod of Dolphins Spotted Off Greece’s Evia Island (video)



A drone video captured a large pod of dolphins feeding on sardines in the Evoikos Gulf earlier in the week.

The spectacular video by the company Updrones shows dozens of dolphins riding the Aegean waves as they circle in on their prey.

Dolphins are highly intelligent and social creatures, usually found in pods composed of dozens of members. This helps them protect one another from danger and also care for injured or sick individuals as a group.

The Greek seas enjoy the privilege of being home to four species of dolphins: the striped dolphin “Stenella coeruleoalba,” the bottlenose dolphin “Tursiops truncatus,” Risso’s dolphin “Grampus griseus,” and the short-beaked common dolphin Delphinus delphis.”
