We know dolphins are smart, but why and how did this happen? Janet Mann is one of the scientists trying to figure this out. For more than 25 years, she has studied the dolphins in Shark Bay, Australia, who have learned to use sponges as tools, something dolphins elsewhere don’t do. Illustrated with photographs.
