Yes, not just in zoos. There is a lot of speculation among professionals about why dolphins jump and leap out of the water. Theories vary and include searching for signs of food, locating other members of their pod, and, of course, purely for the enjoyment of it. Many scientists do believe that dolphins exhibit certain behaviors simply for fun and games.
Dolphins do naturally perform flips in the wild. They jump and spin, slap their tail and head, and perform other acrobatics. One of the most well known dolphins for performing these acrobatics are Hawaiian Spinner dolphins. They can jump out of the water and do as many as 7 complete spins before hitting the water; they also do the head over tail flips.
