Another neat example of other animal intelligence....

This one coming from our brainy finned mammal friends from the ocean. This wild dolphin approached a group of divers off Kona, Hawaii who were out on a manta ray watching expedition. This dolphin approaches the divers, who see that it has fishing line in its mouth, and wrapped around it's fins. The hook from the line is embedded in its fin, and the fishing line is restricting the dolphin's movement. This dolphin ignores instinctual fear, and allows the divers to remove the hook and fishing line. Almost like he was asking for help...

There have been many reports of dolphins helping people in the ocean, usually by running off sharks and such. So it's nice to see an example of a dolphin actually trusting a human for help. I think these animals are infinitely smarter than what we give them credit for...
