A strikingly-colored species, Dusky’s can be found in pods numbering in the hundreds.  These acrobatic creatures often leap high out of the water, and - while in the sea - use communication to corral schools of anchovies as a means of feeding.  After humans, dolphins have the largest brains in the animal kingdom, relative to body size. Despite this fact, their world is…

The human brain has the same general structure as the brains of other mammals, but has a more developed cerebral cortex than any other. Large animals such as whales and elephants have larger brains in absolute terms, but when measured using the encephalization quotient, which compensates for body size, the human brain is almost twice as large as the brain of the bottlenose dolphin, and three times as large as the brain of a chimpanzee. #Glogster #Brain

Much like bats and dolphins, some people have developed the ability to analyze bouncing sound waves to generate a picture of their environment. Advanced echolocators have shown increased mental activity in parts of the brain usually devoted for vision. | How Human Echolocation Allows People to See Without Using Their Eyes
