Dolphins – Why do we love them so? What is it about them that make them seem so friendly. Is it the smile of their mouthline, is it because they always seem so playful. I am sure many of us have spent many an hour sitting down watching episodes of Flipper. We all know that they are amongst the most intelligent animals on the planet. There have been many instances reported of dolphins saving people at sea, are they the lifeguards of the deep blue sea and as such have a kind and friendly demeanor.
Is it perhaps their proportions that make them so appealing, we see the golden ration / golden section appearing in so many places. You will see from page 9 of the following pdf document that “the eye, fins and tail all fall at golden sections of the length of the dolphin’s body”.
