Watching dolphins watch themselves.

YouTube - Dolphins see themselves in mirror:


  1. They should try some funhouse mirrors, and some video cameras, recorders, and monitors. Would the dolphins grasp recording for later playback, and perform in front of the camera with the intent of watching the video later? Would they operate underwater camera controls that controlled an out of water camera? Would funhouse mirrors distress them?

  2. Isn't it wild to think that we could? We could give them record and playback options and see if they perform. If they did, would we ever be able to recognize which was the Ian McShane of the dolphin world? The dolphin David Milch? The dolphin Aaron Sorkin?
