PPI Tim sent me this article from today with a YouTube video of Dophins creating bubble rings under water and then playing with them. Very cool, and worthy of sharing with our PPI family members:

Does this behavior prove that bottlenose dolphins have the ability to think critically?

Here's an article that appeared in the Journal of Comparative Psychology on the subject:
"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."--Carl Sagan


I would love to think that they can think critically.  If anything they sure can come up with neat toys.
Nothing in life is to be feared.  It is only to be understood.  ~Marie Curie
