Scientists all over the world are studying dolphins to understand their secret language. It’s difficult because one sound can mean different things.
When dolphins raise a hand, for example, it can mean “hello” , “good bye” or “stop” – it depends on the context.
Scientists believe dolphins are able to communicate complex ideas such as “there are some good fish over here”. They have a strong sense of ‘family’.
During an experiment, a mother and her son were put in separate tanks. The mother continued ‘talking’, and the baby clearly answered her, even from a different tank.
