10:10 pm - Watching a show on animal intelligence
Some dolphin trainers give the dolphins a two piece command (using sign language), first piece "create" second is "trick". The dolphins dive under water, "talk" (the have under water mics so you can hear their clicks and whistles) to each other for several minutes, then come to the surface, and start swimming around on their back's together. They were never taught to swim around on their back as a command.

So not only did they understand they were supposed to do something they were not taught to do as a trick. They worked cooperatively together so they would both do the same trick.

I must say I'm very impressed.
