An interesting article about creativity in dolphin (porpoise).

Yes, indeed. We have a lot to learn about others and thus about ourselves.

Thanks, Jack... that's amazing!

That's great. We could learn a lot from dolphins: I play, therefore I am.

Ain't it grand! It reminds me a little (anthropomorphizing) of kids blowing soap bubbles. Just no need to stop at the local five and dime for apparatus.
Other studies I've read say that pods of dolphin spend tremedous amounts of time, upwards of fifty percent, in playful physicallity, ie non-sexual caressing, touching and goofing.
Hmph, and we think we're at the top of the evolutionary ladder.
They're fascinating and curious animals. I've lured them to within 10' of me..you can't imagine standing chest-deep in the water, and having a dolphin "standing" there, chattering at you and looking in your eyes. Once, on the Florida panhandle coast, I had a huge male swim up to see what I was doing (banging a shell on a jack-handle, under water). He looked at me and chattered...then he turned and raced off, and came back with a smaller female, and showed me to her.

By Neptune, look, that primitive land creature is making primitive sounds. ;)
