What are the smartest mammals on earth besides humans?

Asking a question about intelligence without giving a benchmark always leaves this a subjective answer. In terms of language acquisition, the answer is likely the gorilla or the African Gray Parrot. Dolphins are also considered quite brilliant, but are more difficult to study. Birds such as crows appear to have a sense of play, which is unusual and indicative of intelligence. Gorillas and chimpanzees are also tool-makers, which puts them in a supremely intelligent category.

Dolphins are perhaps one of the smartest. It is difficult to tell exactly how smart an animal is because sometimes they seem smart, but they just learn to respond a certain way. For example, a dog coming when you call it. That doesn't make the dog a genius. Below is a link to a Nova video on youtube, talking about the intelligence of dolphins. It gets more interesting at the second half, so you might as well skip a few minutes of it. (it's ten minutes long).

Bottlenose Dolphins

What is a bottle-nosed dolphins niche?

A niche is essentially when, where, and how the animal lives. A Bottle-nose dolphin lives near the top of the food-chain, although it still has some predators, such as the great white shark. It's territory is the ocean- it lives in many different areas, so you can look up its habitat. The dolphin feeds off of schools of fish, and sometimes squid. Some species of dolphins also migrate, depending on the location of the animal.

What does a sea otter look like?

Sea otters are bristly, like when you get hairy legs and you shave them and the hair starts to grow they are bristly, but a bit more and they look fuzzy and they live in the sea or in types of pools in water parks and stuff. They are very cute you can go on YouTube to see what they kinda look like. It is very hard to describe them.

Answer: Sea otters have very dense fur. It is sometimes 1 million hairs per square inch. They are usually some shade of brown. An otter has a a long cylindrical body four legs and a long flatish shaped tail. They are usually about four feet long, including their tail. A female may weigh about 45 pounds and a male weighs about 65 pounds. Northern sea otters are slightly larger. A sea otter's face resembles a small dog with a short nose.

Does seawater dehydrate skin faster than freshwater due to osmotic pressure?

Yes; In our body there is more water and less salt. In our stomach there is more salt and less water. However, the skinabsorbs all sorts of materials into them. Osmosis plays an important part in what happens when we are exposed to seawater via diffusion - the driving movement from high concentration to low concentration - so the water in our body (because skin is a membranous tissue absorbing these substances from the water) is driven out towards the lower concentration of water in the salty seawater. BOTTOM LINE: Seawater (saltwater) actually sucks water out of your body thus promoting dehydration because it is semi-permeable and so the salt pretty much stays put but the (fresher) water can move back and forth in our skin or body fairly easily.
