A teenage group of dolphins was caught shooting around a puffer fish off the coast of South Africa. The dolphin gang threw around the poisonous fish and even chewed their skin to "get high," according to MailOnline.

Reportedly, bottlenose dolphins recently began participating in the activity after discovering the effect of the poison.

Apparently the two mischievous dolphins were expelled from their families by the females for being "very unruly".

When male dolphins reach the age of two, they form gangs that travel the sea to look for problems and interact with other marine life.

The shoot was filmed for the BBC's Spy In The Wild.

A camera-robotic spy fish is sent to a gang of teenage dolphins to film their activities.

Dolphins played with a turtle and a puffer fish.

However, due to the dolphins' aggression, the cameras were eventually pushed and thrown off course.

When the puffer fish arrives, he begins to throw it above the surface.

Dolphins begin to swim more creatively as each dolphin holds puffer fish in its mouth.

Once the dolphins release the puffer, it continues swimming unharmed.

Dolphins also give themselves names in order to keep up with their friends and social networks.

Bottle-nosed dolphins talk to each other using "individual vocal labels" and form long-term "cooperative alliances," the researchers found.

The 30-year study of male dolphins set out to understand the role of vocal communication in their social behavior.

A team from the University of Western Australia recorded dolphin sounds using underwater microphones.

Analysis has shown that dolphins in an alliance create vocal labels that are quite different from each other – suggesting that they are names.

Dr. Stephanie King, who led the research, said: “We found that male dolphins form long-term cooperative partnerships.

"These alliances hold individual vocal seals, or" names, "that help men keep track of their many different relationships: who are their friends, who are their friends, and who are their competitors."

The findings contrast with many other species, where animals use similar noises to communicate that they are in a specific group.
