Iran may be close to developing nukes – but we have dolphins on our side. As tensions grow in the Strait of Hormuz – the US Navy said in an interview that it could deploy dolphins in the area to detect underwater mines. As Admiral Tim Keating said in an interview with NPR, dolphins are, “astounding in their ability to detect underwater objects.” Dolphins are also expert diplomats – as Science Daily reported they use diplomacy when they communicate with each other. But animal rights groups aren’t too thrilled with the idea of flipper becoming mine-fodder and have sent petitions to the Navy in protest. If only there was another animal we could use – one that everyone is suspicious of – and one that is far more complex. Quick – someone catch one of those robotic pigeons from the planet Xenu!
