I hope I live to see the day, but apparently scientists are ready to attempt to learn "dolphin."

Its amazing to me how much money is spent trying to find life "out there" when there is so much that we are ignorant of on our own planet.

Dolphins are amazing creatures. I remember reading a story a while back how the dolphin trainers at Sea world had trained the dolphins to pick up and carry off any trash that people would throw in the pools. They would be rewarded with a fish. One of the female dolphins got smart and realized she would get the same reward no matter how big the piece of trash so she would take a piece of trash to the bottom of the pool and put a rock on top of it. She would then tear off a piece of trash and bring it to the trainer. Not only would she do this over and over but she taught her baby how to do it as well.

And humans are so arrogant to think we are the smartest species on the planet...

I believe whale "songs" are much the same type of communication. No wonder the probe in Star Trek 4 was looking in the oceans for intelligent life.

From your source:

dolphins are able to speak to one another in complete sentences containing up to five words apiece.



Using a new type of high-fidelity underwater microphone capable of discerning the dolphins' various sounds, researchers found that the animals use "words" and, even more incredibly, patiently wait until the other has finished with its "sentence" before replying.


I never knew they spoke in sentences..will have to read some more on this subject. Thank you for posting this.

Your welcome.

As an outdoorsman, I have always thought birds speak as well and I still do.

Yes..in my mind..as humans "evolve" in thought..I always assumed that other creatures would as well. Never doubted that they spoke to one another..or have learned how to speak to one another. But maybe their speech is slowly becoming more like ours. Not to say they will ever speak like we do..but I always assumed their language and ability to communicate would develop just as ours does.

Dunno..just random thoughts.

Thanks,

Absolutely fascinating. I want to talk to a dolphin. I want to apologize for the acts of humans, and find out what reality these dolphins live in, how they perceive the world, what they think about other animals, etc.

Took the words out of my mouth. Heh.

I've had a few birds let me know they like me. Animals generally distrust us and other animals equally. Oneself must raise it from a baby to gain it's trust, but, I have made a few animal friends in my time. Skinks are the best, they'll come up to me and look at me for a minute. Same with birds. I can make noises with them but as soon as I make the slightest movement they run/fly away QUICK.

slightly of topic, but I once had a female deer approach me from a small heard and got within a few feet of me before she made a strange whistling sound and bolted off with the heard. I had heard that noise in the woods before and always thought it was a bird. Hard to describe, but if you hear it, you'll recognize it right off. I'd love to know what she was thinking to go against her natural instincts like that.

Heh, that must have been a strange experience. Deers are jumpy. We actually have a rare albino deer out here. If I ever see it again, I'll take a pic. I've seen it three times in 3 1/2 years.

Legal serial killers?

Good job they lack arms to build weapons otherwise we would be at war with dolphins.

All this study proves is that we're as special and unique as we'd like to think, now if we could somehow work out their language so we could communicate back to them, that would really be something

I know about Dolphins, but they were calming the same about Elephants. I don't agree, my Mother in Law still does not.

Are you saying dolphins are smarter than humans? If they were any where near as smart as us they would never swim anywhere near Japan.

Now, that is really something...if/when we learn enough of their language, we may be surprised with what they have to say.

Yes. Now explain why so many slow humanoid apes get eaten by sharks every year and then call for sharks to be killed..

Or why we have to know how to act when a bear attacks us in the woods.

Or why we fall off tall buildings or out of working planes, and our 'chutes fail.

We are not that smart...

I knew a Chippewa Indian that had a squirrel speak English to him in the woods one day.

He did not do drugs and he never indicated that he was prone to flights of fancy.

I do know this much, he was hunting when it happened and he never hunted squirrels again after that day.

No we are not.. But we are still smarter than dolphins.

All critters talk. We have called it Monkey "chatter", bird "song" and insect "noise".

They cry, scream, yell and whisper, too. They fear, love, long, have orgasms and mourn as well.
