Our leader vocalizes with a series of clicks, squeeks, and whistles, signaling it is time to find our meal. The pod moves in synch as we speed off, echolocate, and swarm our target. We herd the fish; circling, splashing, and condensing the mass. Then we dive in to feast. After eating, we float and sleep with one eye closed to rest half our brain while the other side keeps us safe. The pod is our protection, swimming, resting, feeding, and even socializing as a group. Our sonar allows us to “see” and navigate underwater even in murky water. Today we swam 100 miles. Sometimes we surf, dive, and breach just for fun. Life is good in our community.
