Dolphins and Mirrows

Did you know that dolphin is one of the few mammals, other than human, who has the ability to recognise itself in mirrors? Research involving Bottlenose dolphins has recorded interesting behaviours when these lovely animals would catch sight of their reflections. They would open and inspect their mouths, make a series of movements to observe parts of their bodies they can’t normally see, and when marked, dolphins regularly used mirrors to inspect the marking.
