The best story about reaching into dolphin stomachs you’ll likely read today.
#5. An Aquarium Hires the World’s Tallest Man to Save a Choking Dolphin
[T]wo dolphins at an aquarium in China were chowing down on the plastic lining that surrounded their pool when large chunks of the material became lodged in their stomachs (because, like all higher mammals, dolphins will occasionally do things that don’t make one bit of sense). The pieces were too big for the animals to digest, so they just sat piled in their guts like giant lumps of melted G.I. Joes, preventing the dolphins from eating anything else.
The Absurd Solution:
So, in a last-ditch effort to save the two dolphins from starving to death, the aquarium called up Bao Xishun, a former Guinness World Record holder for world’s tallest man, to come reach his absurdly long arms down the animals’ throats to see if he could yank the plastic out.
And he freaking did it.
