According to Florida researchers, dolphins are able to imitate each other, even blindfolded. The researchers at the Dolphin Research Center in the Florida Keys said in a study published in the International Journal of Comparative Psychology that their blindfolded dolphin used other senses to figure out what the other dolphin was doing and copy it. The dolphin is a 7-year-old bottlenose dolphin named Tanner. The researchers said they hope to conduct further studies to "map the dolphin mind"...
