Russian researchers say they have recorded the first “conversation” between a pair of dolphins. The dolphins, named Yasha and Yana, could apparently create sentences of up to five “words.” This is cool, and overwhelming. What were these dolphs talking about? Do you think they were talking about me?
In case you still doubted that dolphins have an awareness rivaling our own, new research shows that these cetaceans can remember the whistles of their old tank-mates after being separated for more than 20 years! No species other than humans has demonstrated such a long-term social memory.
