    From what I gathered, they said that they`re going to be using that sort of silicone (whateveritwas) to help make prosthetics for injuries that are sensitive. So I`m guessing this dolphin is a prosthetic guinea pig.

    although I found this to be interesting and somewhat moving ... I did find it strange that it took the injury of a dolphin for some company to develop a prosthetic that would also accomodate the sensitivity of a human (soldier or civilian) who had lost a limb ... bummer
