Here's another example of the intelligence of whales. In Japan, scientists have been teaching a beluga whale how to talk. The 23 year-old whale named Nack has been trained for the last five years to identify different objects using a variety of tones. The whale only knows three words right now, it makes different noises for bucket, diving goggles and diving fins. The scientists working with Nack at the Kawogawa Sea World aquarium, are hopeful that they might be able to teach the whale to express like and dislikes, and possibly if it is in pain. It would be amazing to be able to communicate with these magnificent creatures. Then we'd know what these creatures really think about us. Who knows what things we would learn, until then we're happy to see scientific studies on animals that has more enlightened purposes. Kudos!
