Do you like the sounds of Whales and Dolphins

Orca,Baluga,blue whales and Dolphins all like musical sounds,like the flute and saxaphone as demonstrated by the videos of a man from the state of maine who made a cd of the interactions of whales and dolphins with manmade musical instruments.

Personally ,I wouldn't mind doing what he did, especially if I could make a living while I was doing it.

Whales and Dophins both have specialized organs in their bulbous heads in what we humans would call nasal membranes .It's a special cavity with which they create sounds.Not only to communicate but,to locate food.They can disable their pray ,by paralyzing them with certain frequencies.That in itself ,is a fascinating way to catch your prey.

When we hear about whales beaching themslves,and we wonder why that happens.

I've recently heard the reason behind why the whales do that.It's because they are sacrificing themselves,so the rest of them can have enough food to survive.When you think about it.We as humans have been stripping the oceans of fish,without thinking or caring what effect it has on the existance of the whales and Dophins.and yet we are not immune to the same fate as the rest of life on Earth.If,the food we consume exceeds the ability of the earth to produce it we will experiance the same fate.Not all of us,but enough to create wars for food.In that case we would be no better off than the whales not to recognize this danger and do something more proactive,such as having fewer children.We should know by now that we can only support a limited number of people especially by continuing to eat so much seafood.

You make several interesting points. I think the tastes and interactions of animals with music are fascinating to observe. Animal intelligence is one of my main interests and favorite blog topics. Did you see my blogs on talking elephants and parrot intelligence?

I had not heard the theory that whales beach themselves to save others in their pods, but it makes sense. Not sure I had heard they can paralyze their prey with their voices. Is voice the right word, I wonder? And is it the loudness that paralyzes the prey? Ingriguing stuff.

I'm clicking to become a fan, and I invite you to follow me as well.

I listen to whales and dolphins and sea sounds at night before going to sleep. Very soothing, very nice hub. Thanks.

I scribble -- I read your profile.Your mother certainly had an interesting life along with a interesting career.I like psychology.I took a rudimentry course and found it to be one of my interests as it relates to logic as well as illogical or emotional behavior.I think it should be a required course in highschool if it already isn't.Parenting would be a lot easier I think if everyone was required to know something about this subject.In fact it would improve our perception of the motives of politicians and advertisers when we are being sold on something that's not necessarily in our best interest.

BobbiRant -- I bought a cd of natures sounds that I find to be relaxing as well.It has the sounds of waterflowing,rainfall, chirping birds,insects, bees humming etc.I belive it's title is "The Symphony of nature" It's very good.
