I feel it is an elephant who is highly intelligent. How you have come to the conclusion that a dolphin is the highly intelligent?

Sathish.S said: (Aug 14, 2011)  
Since dolphin has capacity to observe and do the same.

Reshma said: (Aug 25, 2011)  
Because dolphins has more convolutions in brain than that of man and also thick cortex.

Tin said: (Dec 7, 2011)  
I agree with Reshma...

They are dolphins who are highly intelligent.The behavior and biology of dolphins caught the attention of humans since antiquity.

But their ability to train, their intelligence, memory, the lack of coagulant factor from the blood, their ability to dive to great depths without the peril of gas embolism have triggered the interest of the researchers. But the brain of dolphins is not only big, but also complex, with large brain hemispheres and remarkably extended circumvolutions on the cortex.

In this question only we have to choose the best answer from the given options but actually man is the most advanced mammal.

Avinsh said: (May 13, 2012)  
Research has been revealed that cerebral hemishere of dolphins shows more number of convolutions then any other mammalian group.

Bhagya.M said: (Jun 23, 2012)  
Dolphins are more intelligent in this option. Actually man is the most intelligent mammal.

Suresh Kumar.M said: (Jun 5, 2013)  
I am confused on seeing this question. From my point of view, its the man who has invented and discovered a lot is the most intelligent mammal.

B.Jayasree said: (Dec 23, 2013)  
In dolfins the brain is developed and the parental care also developed. They can identify their generation. But man is the most intelligent mammal.

Vaishu said: (Dec 28, 2013)  
How can you say that man is most intelligent mammal ? A man has a chance to show show their intelligence or performance. But if we see the capacity of dolphin is much greater than a man. It is search of scientist.

Abhishek Jain said: (Jun 27, 2014)  
According 2 question From My point of view DOLPHINS is better than other 3 options.

Utkarsh Tathe said: (Oct 31, 2014)  
According to me DOLPHIN has more number of gyrus in their brain and the number of gyrus of the brain is the reason for the intelligence of DOLPHIN.

Poka-Dot said: (Jan 7, 2015)  
Being that humans use 15% of there brain, dolphins use 20%. Hence, they are way smarter.

Anna said: (Jan 13, 2015)  
This question is ambiguous because whales is a non-specific scientific term, which typically means cetaceans. And dolphins are cetaceans, members of the toothed whale group or "Odontoceti", this is an arbitrary division of the cetacean mammals for this question - as both killer whales (dolphins) and beluga whales (whales) are highly intelligent mammals.

Deepak said: (Jan 14, 2015)  
The dolphin's large brain is structured for awareness and emotion. In fact, dolphin brains are more structurally complex than humans. As Emory University dolphin expert Lori Marino told Discovery News, If human standards for intelligence are applied to non-human animals, however, dolphins come very close to our own brain aptitude levels.

Guru said: (Feb 27, 2015)  
Out of the 4 given, Dolphins are intelligent. But We humans are the most intelligent mammals I guess.

Ari said: (Mar 25, 2015)  
Its the dolphins. Humans use ten percent of their brains while dolphins use twenty. Which is why they use waves as a form of communication and detection.

Reshmi said: (May 22, 2015)  
Dolphins mind is so sharp, it can identify anything more than humans dolphins use the brain much more.

Shilpi Banerjee said: (Jun 28, 2015)  
Dolphin is the second intelligent animal in the world. Dolphin have brains that are about five times larger for their body size where in human; the measurement is seven times larger.

Solomon said: (Oct 25, 2015)  
Dolphin has high IQ.

Joseph Mussa said: (Dec 21, 2015)  
Dolphin is a second intellegent animal over the world after man is shown with different books. I oppose arguement to this answer.

Ivan A.A said: (Feb 1, 2016)  
Dolphins is the most highly intelligent mammals.

Tom said: (Apr 5, 2016)  
Dolphins do that thing which we teach them.

Rudra Singh said: (May 23, 2016)  
Dolphins are the most intelligent mammals compared to all other animals.

Amon Anna said: (Jul 7, 2016)  
Apart from whales, seals, and dolphins which else is an animal live in water can fall under mammals?

Megha said: (Jan 19, 2017)  
I think dolphins are the intelligent one, as compare to others because they survive their life from under the water.

Vishav said: (Jan 22, 2017)  
Yes, dolphins has more power of brain than other animals.

Gunjan said: (Jan 28, 2017)  
Dolphins are the intelligent mammals but the most important intelligent mammals are humans with more advancement of mammalian group.

Mahesh said: (Apr 15, 2017)  
Yes after human, dolphin has high intelligence, that's why they have a role in AJOOBA.

Pappu said: (Aug 31, 2017)  
Why dolphin has high intelligent power as compare to whale and elephant?

Mohit Sharma said: (Feb 17, 2018)  
Dolphines have their own natural sonar which highly advance sonar as compare to any man made sonar. One thing more dolphin uses 20% of their cerebral capacity even human being uses approx 15 % of their cerebral capacity.

Noureen said: (Jan 6, 2019)  
Dolphins not only have intelligence but also gives love to any animal or human compared to any other animals. Not even human gives that much love.

Tani said: (Apr 3, 2019)  
Some of the most amazing thing about a dolphin in order to prove it's intelligence are that sense of their empathy-altruism and attachment. The habit of helping injured individuals as evidence by many accounts of a dolphin carrying humans to the surface to breathe. And like human dolphins mourn over their dead.

Shaswata said: (Aug 5, 2020)  
I think the descending order of intelligence of mammals Will be:-.

1) Human.
2) Chimpanzees (as they use tools like a human).
3) Dolphins.
