Animal intelligence now irrefutable: Bottlenose dolphins call each other by name

• naturalnews.com
  And a recent study published in the journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), adds to the mystery and wonder surrounding dolphins, having found that the bottlenose variety in particular is capable of communicating with other dolphins by specifically calling them by name.

Through a series of learned signals, dolphins are apparently able to communicate with each other in a more advanced way that many scientists previously believed was only possible between humans. According to new research out of the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, dolphins possess not only general signaling abilities, which allow them to find food or warn other dolphins about danger, but they also have the capacity to come up with distinct names for one another.
