Watch the Hilarious Moment a Goofy Toddler Made This Dolphin Laugh

Have you ever wondered what kind of sense of humor a dolphin has? No? Well, it's pretty similar to all of us who are scrolling through Reddit's r/aww posts. A dolphin was so amused by an adorable toddler and her creative father that it let out a couple of underwater laughs. The result was a sweet video you probably won't be forgetting any time soon.

The video was uploaded to r/aww by u/Baby_Thanos570 and widely appreciated by the Reddit community. Though the post was later removed by the thread's moderators (for what reason, we're unsure), it received 18,000 upvotes before being officially removed.

You can still watch the video, though, and you won't regret it. In it, a little girl and her father are staring directly at a dolphin enclosure and one curious dolphin who doesn't want to leave the pair. So, they decide to interact the best way they could: by pretending the little girl was a dolphin.

As the dolphin watches the father-daughter duo, the father picks his child up and flies her through the air, making it look like she's swimming beside the dolphins. The dolphin appears to love this. It opens its mouth multiple times as if it's smiling or laughing, and eventually tries to swim beside the little girl.

Together, they "swim," as the dolphin nods its head with the child's movements.

Before being removed, the video received 22 "Wholesome Awards." which seems entirely fitting. The video shows an entirely uncontroversial moment of bonding between animals and humans. It's the moment we all dream of when we visit the zoo: feeling a connection between species, and getting a video of it to last forever.

The video's comments weren't necessarily as wholesome, though. Some pointed to the somewhat violent natural behavior of dolphins and made the mammal out to be a bad guy. Others pointed to the sad truth of the dolphin's life inside captivity and questioned if it was really living a fruitful life.

Users also argued over the possibility that the dolphin was living in a rehabilitation center with public viewing, that it's not necessarily suffering in captivity. But some determined commenters seemed convinced the video was taken at SeaWorld. There's no confirmation on where the cute moment took place.

But regardless of where it happened, and setting aside the temperament of dolphins, this video is simply heartwarming. Of course people on Reddit found a way to start an argument over it, but let's not overthink this one, people.
