Are Dolphins Actually Kinda Dumb??

Filed under: Science!Sea CreaturesDolphinsChickens

Are dolphins actually kinda dumb?? For realsies??

Justin Gregg is a biologist who has a pretty unpopular theory:

Dolphins are dumb.

Say whaaaaa?? We thought it was common knowledge that dolphins are crazy smart!!

Apparently chickens have some of the same behaviors as dolphins, which either means chickens are kinda smart or dolphins are a little on the dumb side.

Gregg wrote a book all about dolphin dumbness, claiming things like how when captured, goldfish will attempt to jump out of their bowl but when dolphins get caught, they never think to just jump out.

Hmm… that's kinda dumb, if true.

Dolphin lovers and scientists everywhere are obviously rushing to the dolphins' defense.

A marine biologist with the organization Whale and Dolphin Conservation said:

Do dolphins have better memory than elephants??

Just because "an elephant never forgets," it doesn't mean that they've got the BEST long-term memory.

A new study has found that dolphins might actually have an incredibly powerful long-term memory.

Dolphins have a signature whistle, it's the call they make, which is basically like a dolphin version of a name..

When a dolphin in Bermuda was played the whistle of a dolphin it had lived with over 20 years ago, he

Filed under: RescueDolphinsAmazing

This is so incredible!!

A dolphin named Sampal was originally caught by fishermen off Jeju Island, near South Korea.

She was then illegally sold to the Pacific Land Aquarium. There, she was forced to constantly perform tricks for food.

Ric O'Barry, a long time fighter for the rights of sea creatures and director of Earth Island Institute's Dolphin Project convinced the aquarium to give up their dolphins!

Girl Makes Dolphin Laugh!!

Filed under: GymnasticsCuteness!DolphinsFunny

Ah! That's so cute!!

A girl was being filmed doing some flips and tricks in front of a dolphin tank at an aquarium.

Apparently, dolphins are as much fans of humans doing gymnastics as we are of them doing tricks!

This girl was just messing around, having fun until one of the dolphins stopped and started watching her.

The craziest part is he has a huge smile on his face! It looks just like he's laughing!

That's so crazy! She was entertaining a dolphin!

Check out the video (above) to see one happy dolphin laughing at a talented girl.

A Bottlenose Dolphin Mourns Over Dead Calf While Carrying It On Her Back

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueR.I.P.Sad SadDolphins

How terribly sad is this???

A bottlenose dolpin off of Dana Point, Ca is currently morning over her dead calf, and while she's filled with sorrow, she doesn't plan on letting go of her baby anytime soon, so she's been carrying her tot on her back for several days now.

The footage of the funeral procession was captured by Captain David Anderson while he was hosting a Whale Watching Safari, and even though it was a sad sight, Anderson kept his composure and explained that he had never seen this type of behavior.

In the clip (above), you can see the mama carrying her deceased young, and we must say, the video broke our hearts.
