Dolphins Ebook Reading Discovery

Fox Science News reports that Dolphins may have grasped the fundamentals of reading after an experiment in which a dolphin was reported to have been actively flipping through the pages of a Harry Potter book on Kindle.

The report indicates that Dolphins may have taken the next step in the evolutionary chain which opens up many sociological and rights issues. Rather than just a motor skills reflex of changing pages, the dolphin was reported to have been using the left to right eye mechanism used in reading, apparently following the tale of Harry Potter and his exploits with Voldemort. The experiment took place in the Scientific Institute of California.

Nice one. I didn't see this on the date intended but it had me going for a while.

Not very nice, suggesting dolphins are less intelligent.
