    Their brains certainly have a lot more cortical folding (at least on average).

    The thing to do with dolphins is smugly wave your opposable thumbs in their faces.

    I am sure the dolphins are not being smug when they wave their tales in the water:



    Opposable phones + human ingenuity = wars, democide, etc.
    No thumbs + dolphin ingenuity = winnerz

    Dolphins do what they do for their survival, it's a tough world out there.
    They don't do shit for ideological reasons, nor just for fun.
    Maybe if they had legs and opposable thumbs they'd subjugate us, who knows.
    As things stand, they are the winnerz.

    Much more of dolphins' brain volume is cerebellar, though. Otherwise their brains are actually a bit smaller. Blue Whales do have larger cerebral cortices than humans-about three times as large- but this is to be expected of an animal more than thirty times our size.
