In Australia, scientists have found dolphins using tools to find food. The bottlenose dolphin has been observed covering their beaks with basket sponges as they forage for food. The sponge helps them uncover fish hiding in the sandy sea bottom and protects their snouts from scrapes and stings. Part of the "News of the Day" series.
