Summary:
Dive beneath the surface and explore the secret world of dolphins

Graceful, intelligent and playful, bottlenose dolphins are not only the friendliest wild animals, they're also the most complex. With their easygoing nature, it's easy to forget dolphins are wild animals. Now, after decades of long-term study in their native surroundings, researchers can finally share their fascinating findings regarding dolphins' brainpower, society, evolution and striking human traits.

Did you know dolphins are one of the few animals that enter into political relationships? Or that male dolphins battle viciously for social and mating status? NOVA offers a rare glimpse into the private lives of dolphins with amazing scientific evidence collected over nearly 30 years. Visit a remote beach on Shark Bay off Australia's western coast where wild bottlenose dolphins make a daily visit to swim, feed and mingle with people of all ages. Travel to Sarasota Bay, Florida and experience life in a remarkable "dolphin colony" that's been tracked, tested and recorded over two decades and three generations. And enjoy this unprecedented look at the rarely seen underwater world of dolphins.
