1 of 8

The United States Navy has recruited 20 bottled nosed dolphins and California sea lions to watch over the shoreline surrounding the submarine base in Washington’s Puget Sound. Recruited as anti-terror officers, the dolphins serve as highly efficient military guards. Mike Rothe, head of science for the Navy's marine mammal program, said, “They are better than anything we have ever made.” 75 dolphins and 25 sea lions were stationed at San Diego’s Naval Base Point Loma.
