While many dolphin calls sound like whistles, the study found the sounds are produced by tissue vibrations analogous to the operation of vocal folds by humans and many other land-based animals.
Similar to deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphs, the researchers may then be able to figure out the meaning of dolphin calls. In addition to the whistle-like sounds, dolphins produce chirps and click trains, suggesting they engage in very complex and sophisticated social interactions.

Seriously. We have really done ourselves in with nature. If you visited the relating article I posted, I like how we dub dolphins as "the second most intelligent creature". Who are we to say that? Ridiculous. All the animals are probably watching ourselves eff everything over, including ourselves, and just shaking their heads.

They are not soooooo friendly and lovely as it look a like,
in fact they are Hunters and Murderers,
they do not stop even to hunt Baby Manatees ( which are Mammals too)
