About this book

Looks at current research, and reflects the scientific community's fascination with a large-brained creature exhibiting behaviour that can only be described as `intelligent'. It reveals how mothers and babies are the stable focus of dolphin life, while male dolphins can form lifelong bully-boy gangs that terrorize the local community. Also covered in detail is the ingenious methods of catching fish with the hgelp of dolphins and their use of tools.
