Lots of Fancy Words - But not a word on Evolution[edit]

I searched this entire "article" and couldn't find a single word about how long this species has been around. Doesn't someone know how long they've been around in terms of evolution in their (relatively) current form? How can we have endless discussions about citations and quotes, and leave out the vital information someone might actually be interested in knowing? If we can use a big word to discuss brain size, surely, someone out there with a big enough brain can give us an estimate of how long these creatures have been around. I've read it elsewhere, but right here is where we ought to be able to find it. 98.194.39.86 (talk) 00:15, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Second largest EQ after humans? Not so[edit]

The statement "Bottlenose dolphins have the second largest encephalization levels of any mammal on Earth (humans have the largest)" is simply untrue if we look to the reference cited [9]. Tursiops truncatus is given EQ of 4.14 - there are 3 other dolphins with higher EQs: Delphinus delphis 4.26, Lagenorhybchus obliquidens 4.55 and Sotalia fluviatilis 4.56.

Embarrassment[edit]

If we want to protect the article from editing because it's so vital and colossally sacrosanct, could we at least make sure the text is SPELLED correctly? I am unfamiliar with, e.g., the word ECHOS, though I have heard of ECHOES. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:589:4B00:7AB:38D9:750B:4B20:AF3A (talk) 11:13, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
