People have noticed for a long time that Dolphins and Whales demonstrated their ability to form tight knit community's and complex social structures but recent scientific research is showing it possibly goes much deeper!


Whales and dolphins (Cetaceans) live in tightly-knit social groups, have complex relationships, talk to each other and even have regional dialects - much like human societies. Read more at: phys.org...





complex alliance relationships - working together for mutual benefit
social transfer of hunting techniques - teaching how to hunt and using tools
cooperative hunting
complex vocalizations, including regional group dialects - 'talking' to each other
social mimicry and 'signature whistles' unique to individuals - using 'name' recognition
interspecific cooperation with humans and other species - working with different species alloparenting - looking after youngsters that aren't their own
social play


These amazing creatures are capable of much more then we expected of a species other than man and are exciting researchers!

Maybe we should start treating our marine life a little better then we do currently.

The dolphin genome is identical to ours, but arranged differently. We are closest in DNA material, to dolphins, not apes, not cattle, not lab rats.

And have known they're our cousins since childhood.

They need to obtain full protected human status, some equal species recognition and legality, and that means the oceans need to be cleaned up and toxins/radioactive wastes and synthia or carbon destroying substances, and oils, need to stop being dumped in them.

I have always had an affinity for dolphins. To me, they're one of the most beautiful creatures on our planet.

Dolphins are extremely smart , years ago while fishing with the family i spotted a pod of dolphins and drove the boat over to them . A couple of dolphins appeared on the bow of the boat and it was like they led me away , there were younguns there and i think they may have been feeding . More recently i showed the youngest lad how to pick up dolphins , motored over and they bow surfed for around 2 minutes . Pretty sure they were watching us more than us watching them. Absolutely beautiful creatures , and smart . One thing i have noticed with all my interactions is they always operate in pairs at the very least , quite often more but never less than two . Well that would be alone i guess

Dolphins are pretty violent. I don't know if I would consider them "people". People can be violent too but the extreme that dolphins go to are pretty common. They kill their own as well as their own children just for the hell of it. They play volley ball with sharks for fun, they'll kill a human just cause and so many other violent behaviors.

No.

No they are not.

However, I'm all for treating animals much better than we as a species (actual people) do, but dolphins are not people.

Even beyond just other "human-like" animals like Dolphins, I think we humans should be paying more respect to other other highly developed creatures as well. It's pretty egotistical of us to even limit it to just those animals that are "almost human" before we start paying them some respect.

Other animals which still not as advanced as even Dolphins or Whales are still extremely advanced as well and should be treated with a level of dignity that suits them. Like Elephants for example. They are extremely advanced both mentally and emotionally as well and yet we often treat them like they don't have any of those higher functions at all.

The fact that we abuse Dolphins and Whales and other advanced mammals the way we do is basically criminal. But then look at how we treat other humans most of the time.

It's good to see that some of us are starting to realize it though. I suppose it's a good start if nothing else. The rest of mankind really need to catch up though.

Only animals humans acre about are the ones we perceive as cute .
Poor dolphins aaaa so cute .
well what about these guys should we care about them with faces only a mother could love ?
www.google.com...< br /> If you are judging on how smart the animal is ? If that is the case humans should be first on the extinction list as we pee in the same water we need to drink .
Now tell me just how smart is that ? lol
