For the first time, a conversation between two dolphins has been recorded using a special microphone.
Dolphins have long been thought to communicate using their own unique, complex language, but now scientists in Russia have actually managed to catch them in the act by listening in on how the animals form ‘sentences’ using their distinctive clicks and whistles.

The experiment recorded two Black Sea bottlenose dolphins communicating with one another at the Karadag Nature Reserve in Feodosia, Russia. The researchers found that each dolphin would stop and listen to the sounds made by the other before replying with its own reciprocal ‘words’.
Exactly what the two dolphins were saying to one another however remains unknown.
