This Cute Animation Explains Just How Smart Dolphins Actually Are

By Casey Chan on at

We always hear that dolphins are smart but just how smart are they? Lori Marino explains for Ted-Ed in this cute animation and it’s almost stunning how intelligent they are. Their encephalisation quotient (brain size to body size) is second only to us dumb humans and goes into detail how they can pass down knowledge to their kids, understand language, empathise with other creatures and so forth.

It’s an interesting watch, for sure.
