Dolphins communicate with each other, but we have not as yet learned the language. Because Humans are not under water creatures by nature, that would make us Aliens to them. Do you think they have adduction meetings telling each other of the Strange encounters with smaller ,black fish, with two back fins, and bubbles coming from their heads? And the Weird Experiments done to them? Give a person a new perspective don't it?

This will help in the making of more under sea Labs to study on the ocean bottom the true nature of all who live there. Other wise we are just Visitors. And mean ones at that.
