The lab housed a collection of mammal brains in glass jars, including a twelve-pound brain from a killer whale. He’d never seen anything like it. Its sheer size and heft, its multitude of convulsions-far more than a human brain-told him that this was an exceedingly complex and sophisticated organ. Clearly this animal had a lot of intellectual power.
