Dolphins are recorded having a conversation "just like two people" for the first time. Are dolphins smarter than humans?

  • Definitely Dolphins are smart

    Dolphins are very smart . Do know that they can even open a can with their beaks!They are so intelligent that they follow peoples instructions at sea world. That is how you see amazing dolphin shows at sea world . That is how smart they are . Well after all dolphins might not be smarter then humans but they are as smart as humans . But they cuter than baby people.-Ananya Vinod

  • Yes they can be as smart as us.

    Dolphins are very smart.Now they can even open cans by them self with there beaks. In Sea world they follow the trainer instructions thats how you see dolphins do amazing stuff . Maybe they aren't smarter than us but they are definitely as smart as us and are very cute.-Ananya Vinod

  • Define smart please.

    Dolphins don't, to our knowledge, indulge in self-destructive behaviour. They don't hurt or kill each other for kicks. They don't knowingly destroy the only habitat they've got. They don't spend their entire lives trying to figure out what someone else wants them to do, and doing it (unless they're unfortunate enough to be captive). Smart is as smart does.

  • Yes, they are.

    A group of scientists in Florida earlier this year showed that the communication between dolphins increases when they are undertaking a difficult task - in one case removing the lid from a canister - as if they were discussing the best solution. Scientists already knew that dolphins use more than one thousand different types of whistle depending on social context but it was unclear if they could communicate directly with each other, one to one.

  • Anyone who answered yes must have misread the question

    Note how in the question it says ''smarter'' then humans, the obvious factual answer is no, the accomplishments of humans far outweigh the intelligence of a dolphin, now if you were to ask ''are dolphins smart'' then I would have agreed, however seeing as this is basically a contest, intelligence of dolphins vs intelligence of humans the humans obviously win.

  • No, thay are smart but not like people.

    All creatures have a way they communicate with each other, that is basic among all animals and dolphins are not an exception only that that they are more intelligent compared to other animals. Even so, that does not make them smarter than human, humans are the smartest in all creation.

  • No, I do not think that dolphins are smarter than humans.

    My argument is from a religious viewpoint and I personally believe that human beings are the smartest on earth. That dolphins might be able to do things differently from humans does not make them smarter than humans. Dolphins and humans were not made for the same purpose, so one cannot necessarily be smarter than the other.

  • They are still animals.

    I'm sure that dolphins are very intelligent creatures, and of course they have a method of communicating with one another. However, this certainly does not mean that they are as smart as or smarter than humans. Humans are a unique part of creation, and animals are just not the same.
