The heart-warming footage comes after another trending video has emerged of a dolphin circling three times in front of a speed boat after a group of rescuers saved it from being stranded on a beach in China.
The animal was trapped on the sand before being rescued by local fishermen and police officers last week in the southern Chinese city Zhanjiang of Guangdong province.
The video captures the moment of the bottlenose dolphin seemingly showing its appreciation to the rescuers by swimming in loops.
