I've never heard of this but it makes sense when you think about it


It is documented that dolphins do appear to be attracted to pregnant women, maybe this is why -



Using echolocation, dolphins might be able to detect a pregnant woman's developing fetus, some experts say. Dolphins emit sounds in their environment and listen to the echoes that return — a process that helps them identify the shapes and locations of objects. Doctors use a similar technique to image a developing human baby. Both involve ultrasound — high-pitched pulses of sound above the range of human hearing. "I think it's extremely plausible [dolphins] would be able to detect a fetus," said Lori Marino, a neuroscientist at Emory University in Atlanta who studies cetacean intelligence. However, "you'd have to really do a well-controlled study to make a definitive statement," she cautioned.


So dolphins can possibly detect unborn babies just like ultrasound scans?




Very sweet :-)

The body is mostly water.
It would make sense.

That is so beautiful.

You can tell the Dolphin is happy.

I thought this was already confirmed, it's well known in dolphin training circles. In fact, when you go on those dolphin excursions on holidays, they ask if anyone is pregnant because the dolphins will circle the woman to protect her. In fact, many people have actually found out they are pregnant that way. (or so it goes.)

I guess that makes dolphins republicans.

Bwhoohoo...uh, Bwaheehee...never mind, I'm still working on it.

But it does kind of make sense. Pretty cool, if true.

Smarter than many humans already.

Ann McAffery wrote Dolphin Riders of Pern (sci-fi), in 1994. The critters in that book detected a pregnancy. I know, sci-fi, but....

The fluid in the ueturus would make that pretty easy. They can hear each other from miles away. Why not a fetus 4 inches away?

There is always "that guy" that turns a thread into a political bait topic. Even a marine biology thread.

I have read that the Russians have been experimenting with this for years!
Not only having the expectant mother together with dolphins in pool at times during the pregnancy but also Water Births and having a Dolphin in a pool next to the one that the mother giving birth is in with a glass wall between the two!
If I was straight and my wife was pregnant I would definitely try to convince her to go the whole hog!
If what I have read is corrrect, I am trying to remember where it was that I read it, the child could end up being extraordinarily intelligent!

ETA. Reason being the dolphns actually can and do communicate with the unborn child! Of course I don't know if this is true but smoke = fire!

Dolphins are matriarchal social beings. So that means they give first deference to the master mom of the group. That's going to be the woman with the melon on her abdomen. The unpregnant ones are just her servants, in dolphin logic.

Wouldn't me surprise me , heck i think most animals are able to do this.

Bats, snakes, dolphins... You know animals who actively use sonar. However I think to dolphin is only socially evolved enough to recognize its a baby and the emotional connection of it.

No one did that here, someone made a joke. You do understand joke right? Funny funny ha ha?

Except that the so-called joke is not even remotely funny, except to Republicans.

Dolphins are vicious, destructive predators that kill far more than they can eat – they attack sperm whale pods, for example – and dominance battles among male dolphins are so violent that mature individuals of some species have bodies literally covered in scars. Their idea of normal sexual relations is abduction and gang rape.

Republicans, eh? :shk:

Maybe, but we would only know for sure if, once the baby is born, the Dolphins let it die of starvation. Then we will know for sure they are Republicans.

Great news. Now all we need to discover is a dolphins word for boy or girl. It would be neater to find the sex of your baby from a dolphin, and cheaper too, than a doctor.
So if the dolphin tells you it's a boy and you believe him, is the dolphin actually saying you are a "little nuts".


S&F, actually, this is very probable information. I also believe that animals that can detect heat can be used to detect inflammation or illness.

I guess that could be true... If the woman was raped and the dolphins were preventing the woman from seeing a doctor to remove what she feels to be the spawn of the devil out of her body so she can actually begin the process of moving on from a traumatic experience... Yes I could picture them being republicans in that scenario... Swimming by whispering into her ear "Yesssssss...let the Hate flow through you...keep it deep inside and nurture it..why be hasty about it, when you can prolong the suffering even longer?"

But, I dunno... I kinda liken them to Democrats, protecting the female and her right to choose. If its not rape then is it a sin? Sure but you and I cannot stop people from sinning...they have to make that choice on their own.

I actually hate both Democrats and Republicans or rather the whole system, not the people themselves individually, but I just had to show you how the argument can go both ways. Of course it's always a good idea to protect a pregnant woman, so at least we can agree on that!

Unfortunately dolphins always look happy because of the way their mouths are. This is a curse. Dolphins in water parks are under extreme stress and often try to commit suicide and are mentally disturbed.

I'm not trying to make you sad or anything, just please, please do not ever take your family or children to a waterpark. We want water parks to not be able to exist anymore (luckily many of them have shut down because fewer people go)
