Dolphins Could Have Different «Handedness» Just Like Humans!
By Staff, Agencies
It is a well-known fact that humans tend to be right or left handed, but left-handed and right-handed creatures also exist in the animal kingdom.
Dolphins can be left- or right-handed just like people and show this preference when searching for food, a new study has revealed, according to a new research published in the journal Royal Society Open Science.
Study revealed that of 27 dolphins studied, only one appeared to favor its left-hand side.
According to the scientists, it indicates a main specialization in the left side of the dolphin brain, which processes information from the right eye.
Dolphins use a technique called 'crater feeding', in which they swim slowly along the sea floor searching for food, and when they detect their prey, they make a sharp turn towards it.
According to study made between 2012 and 2018, the scientists found that dolphins had a significant preference for turning right.
Out of 27 dolphins who overall made 709 turns, 705 turns [99.4%] preferred their right-hand sides.
