Dolphins are about as interesting as any animal could be, because they are so intelligent. Today, on National Dolphin Day, you could go in so many different directions:
- Visit dolphins in real life or in a virtual way, such as this video about a new behavior that dolphins invented.
- Read about dolphin intelligence. This article gives some really interesting examples of dolphins learning and teaching behaviors.
- Check out the pink (albino) bottlenose dolphin...much cuter than the pink river dolphin from the Amazon river!
Dolphins use the sounds they emit to locate yummy
fish and other things in the marine environment.
It's called echolocation.Listen to dolphin sounds.
- Learn about dolphins saving a dog and doing other heroic deeds.
- Watch Dolphin Tale.
- Finally, I have not yet listened to this TED talk, but Denise Herzing asks, “Can we speak the language of dolphins?”
