QT2196-D. Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) seeks out and initiates touch interaction with scuba divers, here a woman (model released). Note that this is a wild dolphin, and has not been trained or fed. For some unknown reason, this particular dolphin in the Socorro Islands occasionally approaches scuba divers and positions itself immediately in front of divers and willingly accepts gentle stroking. Islas Revillagigedos, Baja, Mexico, Pacific Ocean.<br />
