Cetacean intelligence

Cetacean intelligence denotes the cognitive capabilities of the cetacean order of mammals and especially the various species of dolphin.

Cetaceans include whales, porpoises, and dolphins, and while all are broadly considered intelligent, dolphins have generated the most attention as their capabilities appear to be of a different order than that of their relatives.
