Shakira - Shakira Worried For Injured Dolphin

Shakira is worried about the plight of an injured dolphin.

The 'She Wolf' singer is on vacation in South Africa and was left heartbroken when she looked out of her hotel room to see the sea-dwelling mammal beached and wounded.

She wrote on her twitter page: "View from my hotel room. There's a wounded dolphin stuck on the beach. I hope they can get him back in the ocean soon."

Since arriving in South Africa Shakira has become well acquainted with the animal kingdom, and during one day trip a friendly baboon decided to sit on her car.

Tweeting in Spanish and English, she wrote: "Here join the Atlantic Ocean and Indian Ocean, the southernmost point of Africa ... A baboon on our car! The animal kingdom is revolutionized today! Un babuino en el carro. El mundo animal, revolucionado. (sic)"

However, not all of Shakira's animal encounters have been friendly.

During one outing, she was bitten by a sea lion as she tried to take the creature's photo.

In a post on her Facebook page, she revealed: "This afternoon I happened to see some sea lions and seals. I thought to myself how cute they were so I decided to get a bit closer than all of the other tourists and went down to a rock trying to pet them doing a baby talk while taking pictures...

"Suddenly, one of them jumped out of the water so fast and impetuously that it got about one foot away from me, looked me in the eye, roared in fury and tried to bite me.

"Everyone there screamed, including me. I was paralyzed by fear and couldn't move, I just kept eye contact with it while my brother "Super Tony" jumped over me and literally saved my life, taking me away from the beast."
