(Atlas Obscura)   Studies show that dolphins participate in a team as a means of reproductive success. That's great, but it still hasn't helped them get to the playoffs in the last decade   (atlasobscura.com) divider line

For a different kind of 'reproductive success strategy' from the one mentioned in the article... there are dolphin rape gangs.

Sometimes they're playful, sometimes they help people for who knows what motivation, and sometimes they even get frustrated when people they're interacting with are too slow to pick up on what the dolphin wants.  Sometimes they help out other dolphins in a 'pay it forward' kind of way.

And sometimes a bunch of horny male dolphins get together to pen in and rape a female.

They went to the wildcard round in 2016.

From TFA: "when male dolphins need or offer help corraling a female, they rely less on bonds of friendship"

So they just need a wingman.

dolphins are right up there with humans on the rapey list :(

don't forget the part where they also starve the isolated distressed female dolphin into submission.

I mean, who doesn't enjoy a psychotropic pufferfish-fuelled orgy now and again?

I read the headline to Mrs. Jormungandr and she says "Is it about the gang rape?"
So we read the article and she said "Ah, yes it is about the gang rape."
