Is There Really Intelligence Under the Sea?

Record #:
Dr. James Mead of the Smithsonian Institute was on hand to help answer this question. The creatures that helped determine the intelligence level of marine life included beaked whales, porpoises, and bottle-nosed dolphins. As for the criteria used to determine intelligence level, if communication was a criterion, then the answer was affirmative.
