What do dolphins talk about?

Scientists suspect dolphins “talk” about everything from basic facts, like their age and gender, to their emotional state. When the going gets tough, they’ll call other pod members for backup. They even have names – so-called social whistle – to summon one another. Intensely social animals, dolphins probably communicate a lot about their relationships.

Though researchers don’t yet fully understand the complexities of a dolphin’s language, these creatures are universally regarded as highly intelligent. Because they are so smart, dolphins can use their voices to articulate relatively sophisticated ideas — for example, a dolphin that has been attacked may communicate what happened to others, then lead them in retaliation or retreat. Similarly, dolphins may use their voices to share information regarding the location of food or potential danger.
