They may not be sharks with "frickin laser beams attached to their heads" but these dolphins are the next nest thing. The Navy has trained 85 dolphins to defend nuclear weapons at the Naval Base Kitsap 20 from Seattle. The Navy has used dolphins to help secure the waters around the base since 2010! The dolphins (and sea lions) are trained at The Navy Marine Mammal Program at the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (or SPAWAR) in San Diego, California.

No, I'm not making this up! The dolphins can find unwanted swimmers, swim back to their trainers who give them a transponder for the dolphins to swim back to the intruder and drop hear them. They can also disable an intruder with a bite plate that they can attach to a person's leg. Wow, we knew they were smart, but this is awesome! Not as cool as sharks with lasers on their heads, but hey, who's to say that's not coming next?
