180517 0655 MALE ON MALE SOCIAL SEXUAL, NOODLE, SICLE, SKELLITOR, IGOR, ...

And every now and then we catch the boys pokipodding - a casual termed coined by the dolphin encountours team to describe what is non-reproductive sexual behaviour. Here Skellitor, Sicle, Igor, Noodle and one other male can be seen shoving and poking around.  In the beginning Skellitor can be seen pinning Igor to the sand until another male arrives.
