Wacky Wednesday ~ Dolphin Brain

The picture was taken at the Arboretum where they have an exhibition of the depths of the deep sea

Dolphins sleep in a strange way. One half of the brain is asleep and the other half is awake and with its help, the animal monitors what is happening.

Dolphins have just as big a brain as we humans do. Their brain turns are even more complex than ours, so their brains have more surface area. The brain surface, however, is crucial to the intelligence of a being. So are dolphins more intelligent than humans? Giorgio Pilleri, a renowned Swiss expert on brain and tendon, believes this is possible. It has been learned that the dolphin’s brain processes much more information at the same time as the human.

  1. In my recent book I have included a quote that I loved by Douglas Adams: “For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”

  2. To my question: Who is the smart dolphin or the human? I found this piece of information I want to share: That in the dolphins kindness is more than in us humans. They have no malice and envy.

  3. in the wonderful books (Hitchhikers series) Douglas Adams (in the first book when the dolphins left earth)
    wrote this line as the dolphins left “thanks for all the fishes!”

    Dolphins are probably at least as smart as humans are!

  4. This is such interesting information! I recently watched a video where young dolphins were bullying another fish, and they were biting it because it releases some substance like a drug. It’s amazing how similar their behavior is to humans’.
