BEIJING, April 14 (Xinhuanet) -- Thousands of dolphins blocked the suspected Somali pirate ships when they were trying to attack Chinese merchant ships passing the Gulf of Aden, the China Radio International reported on Monday.

The Chinese merchant ships escorted by a China's fleet sailed on the Gulf of Aden when they met some suspected pirate ships. Thousands of dolphins suddenly leaped out of water between pirates and merchants when the pirate ships headed for the China's.

The suspected pirates ships stopped and then turned away. The pirates could only lament their littleness before the vast number of dolphins. The spectacular scene continued for a while.

Amazing! That's just one of the reasons we have dolphins as our mascot! Those animals have got to be the smartest out there in the sea!

Yeah, it's a pretty amazing story. And there are cases where people claim dolphins saved them from a shark attack, as well.

Too bad during regulation games, we can't field that many mammals on D.

Is this an omen for the Tampa Bay-Miami game this season?
