Dolphins love to play. Scientists say that this is indication of dolphin intelligence. Wait a minute, other animals can play. I know that dogs play. My friend has a french bulldog named Brooklyn. Brooklyn knows how to play dead.

I don’t think Brooklyn can do this…

What amazes me about this is that these dolphins taught this to themselves. Not only did one dolphin have the abstract capabilities to figure it out, but then it was passed along to other dolphins. Whether or not this is a naturally occurring thing in the wild, it is still testament to dolphin intelligence.
