Tag Your It

"Tag Your It" is an acrylic painting on canvas board. I'm a big fan of dolphins and have been most my life. Here are some fun facts about them.
Dolphins are extraordinarily intelligent animals who also display culture, something which was long-believed to be unique to humans. They have been observed teaching their young how to use tools. They cover their snouts with sponges to protect them while foraging.

Dolphins have several highly developed forms of communication. They have a signature whistle which allows other individuals to reccognise them.
They are altruistic animals. They are known to stay and help injured individuals, even helping them to the surface to breath. Their compassion also extends across the species-barrier. There are many accounts of dolphins helping humans and even whales.They live in groups and cooperate with each other to get food and in raising offspring (calves).

Dolphins are extremely playful and curious animals. They play-fight with each other and also play with seaweed. They have also been known to play with other animals such as dogs.
Dolphins sleep by resting one side of the brain at a time. This allows them to continue rising to the surface for air and to keep an eye open to watch out for predators.
