Yesterday I found, while browsing the net, this video; some people say it's fake: I don't know. All I know is that it is one of the most beautiful videos I have seen lately: a woman is giving birth while a dolphin is curiously moving around.

A mother, her baby and a dolphin
Years ago, I was visiting an oceanographic museum, with a huge vessel where you could watch fishes and dolphins. At some point, I approached the glass and positioned myself right in front of a dolphin, who came closer to me; we both watched each other, face to face, for a few seconds. I had the distinct feeling that there was an intelligent, conscious mind at the other side of the glass. I have very fond memories of that moment, and it reinformed my perception that there is a very fine line to make the difference between human intelligence and animal intelligence. After all, we are only evolved monkeys.
