Dolphins Learn Music

Dolphins Learn Music
(Discovery Channel News)
“The dolphin was reinforced for producing a specific rhythm to a specific object,” said Harley. “For example, when we presented him with a ‘Batman’ doll, he received a fish for producing a specific rhythm—in this case, a short sound and then a long one.”

She added, “If you recall the original ‘Batman’ TV series musical intro you’ll probably remember the way they sang ‘Bat-maaaaaaaan.’”

“Holy solmizating cetaceans, Batman!”
