Basically the meaning of the word Dolphinarium is a pool or aquarium where the dolphins are kept, particularly the ones where they are displayed for the public. Dolphins are human-friendly mammals in the deep, and they are involved for centuries with humans, protecting them from danger most of the times, as Dolphins have been said to form protective circles around swimmers in threat, protecting them from sharks or lifting them to the surface to breathe, on many occasions, they even towed humans to shores.

It might be roaming around your mind that how the dolphins make sense of their world, how do they perceive their world, how do they conceptualize their world, how they represent their world, how they communicate with one another, that’s what we are trying to explain here, for you to have a better picture to enjoy more by knowing this beautiful creature more. Dolphins, Orcas and pilot animals are from the same family of the toothed whales which are famous for their extreme intelligence.
Researchers have identified 3 levels of aligns within dolphin society, the most intimate are between pairs or trios of males who work together over decades to guard the females they successfully court. Despite the remarkable stability of these alliances over time, dolphins also appear to be unpredictable, the same two dolphins maybe friends one day and rivals the next, and unlike primates, these associations may depend on the condition, for example, which other dolphins are nearby.
Naturally, keeping track of these complex social networks requires a hell of a lot of brainpower. They also interact intelligently with humans, and they have work with humans for ages, from giving rides to the ancient Greeks to helping Brazilians catch fish to planting bombs for the Soviet Union. They also play games with us, sometimes with just as much enthusiasm as with each other, and enjoying showing off, whether it’s by decorating their fins with our snorkels or forming circles with ribbons to jump through.
Like many animals dolphins can be taught to perform tricks, they can be trained to stand upright on their tails and skate backward through the water, to wave their fins or to corkscrew through the air, and so on-all of this can be done on the command of a human. Dolphins interestingly can often be heard exchanging chirps and whistles in pairs before executing these tricks, suggesting they are discussing a plan.
Dolphins sleep with merely partial of their brains in one time while the other remains fully alert a kind of relaxation identified as unihemispheric (SWS). Not only does this allow them to keep surfacing for air when need to, but it also lets them keep an eye out for danger. Literally: while the right hemisphere of the brain sleeps, the right eye stays open and alert, and vice versa as they alternates between the hemispheres to fully rest the brain. This process takes roughly four hours, two hours for each side, and rarely will they sleep without company.
Dolphins can perceive and perhaps can draw too with sound; as they have an extraordinary ability for echolocation the same as bats but much higher because sound voyages quicker in water. In milliseconds, Dolphins can plot the surroundings, that even today‘s supercomputers fall short of such accuracy. In fact, they can classify the dimension, form, and speediness of an object from far away, additionally; they can even distinguish between outwardly similar objects like a golf ball and ping-pong, based on their internal density-kind of like x-ray vision.
Another unique fact about dolphins is that their brain is quite large than the human brain, as the size of the brain is 1, 6 kilograms while ours is 1, 3 kilograms. The dolphins can identify themselves in the mirror as a sure sign of self-awareness and one that most other animals fail at, furthermore, they are also fully aware of their body parts and know exactly who’s in charge of their movement- something even human babies are apparently unable to grasp.
If you are thinking of dolphin should be treated like people in the legal sense than yes you are right! As they are people in every sense, as, after all, they are sensitive, they have sentiments they display discipline, and they treat others in a more or less ethical manner-certainly no worse than human do anyway, to say that they are the second most intelligent species after humans might not be going far enough.
