Bottlenose dolphin - blowing air bubbles underwater
STA-94 Bottlenose dolphin - blowing air bubbles underwater Distribution: Worldwide except polar regions Tursiops truncatus Complex play / creative behaviour: dolphins often play with the bubbles or rings of air they create, both visually and by using sonar. They appear to enjoy biting the vortex rings, so that these burst into many seperate normal bubbles, which then rise more rapidly to the surface. They also play games, diving through the bubble rings for fun! Augusto Leandro Stanzani Please note that prints are for personal display purposes only and may not be reproduced in any way.

Primate brain evolution
Primate brain evolution. Conceptual computer artwork of a brain (centre) with a monkey head (left) and a human head (right), representing the evolution of primate brains. Monkeys and humans are both primates, mammals that have good eyesight and flexible hands and feet. Both descend from a common ancestor, but have evolved differently. Their brains are similar, but humans have complex language and reasoning abilities. They also have highly developed technology, populate most of the land areas of the globe, are exploring surrounding space, and have scientific theories to explain the world around them. Monkeys live in jungles where they hunt and forage for food.
