You could also join the <alt.animals.dolphins> Newsgroup. The magnetic
sense is known in cetacea. Magnetic material has been found in the
brains of several whale species. Fin whales for instance navigate
along the earth magnetic field. Modern research suggests that dolphins
are able to percept magnetic energy as well as electromagnetic waves.
