Meanwhile, back in the aquarium...

Scientists in Florida have taught a dolphin to sing the theme from Batman.

I'm not kidding.

"The dolphin was reinforced for producing a specific rhythm to a specific object," says says Professor Heidi Harley.

"For example, when we presented him with a Batman doll, he received a fish for producing a specific rhythm, in this case, a short sound and then a long one."

"If you recall the original Batman TV series musical intro you'll probably remember the way they sang 'Bat-maaaaaaaan'."
