The Russian Military Have Bought Five Dolphins 'With Perfect Teeth' - And Won't Say Why...
Five dolphins in Moscow now have higher security clearance the you...
In the weirdest and creepiest story this week, the Russian Military has bought five healthy dolphins with "perfect teeth" for $26,000.
Three males and two females were bought by Russia’s Ministry of Defence from an aquarium in Moscow, with instructions that all five had “perfect teeth, average length and a willingness to ‘display motor activity.’"
Since this purchase was been discovered by the public, Russia's military has failed to respond to any questions, or confirm the purchase whatsoever - weird.
During the Cold War, both the United States and the Soviet Union developed military dolphin programs for patrolling waters and even harpooning the enemy.
We're not happy about animals being held in captivity for any reason, but this story is not only worrying, but also just totally bizarre.
So whether it's for super classified military plans, or just an unusual Colgate advert - we just hope that the pearly white dolphins are looked after while they carry out their secret mission.
