About this book

Language: Japanese

This book describes Professor Murayama Tsukasa's research of the last 20 years at Tokai University Ocean College into dolphin communication. He claims to have proof of dolphin's ability to imitate people's words, which was the subject of a popular documentary Dr. Dolphin. He has been working with a beluga whale by the name of Nak, who was raised in Kamogawa Sea World, Japan, and has done experiments to establish dolphin intelligence testing, and training to try and find out how to see things in their eyes, training linking objects and words, and training to make sounds by imitatiing people's voices.
