"Wuzzle" in reference to spinner dolphins; is a term for "group sessions of mutual caressing and sexual activity (both same-sex and opposite sex)". "The term wuzzle though used as a technical designation for this behavior in the scientific literature is actually a nonsense word coined by a marine biologist, W.E. Schevill of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, who, when asked what the behavior was, replied without hesitation, "Why, it looks like a wuzzle to me." [p.18] Bagemihl, Bruce. 1999. Biological Exuberance: Animal Homosexuality and Natural Diversity. NY: St. Martin's Press.

What can we say, dolphins were too dignified to participate in the genetic experiments
