When two dolphin species interact they try to find a common language with which to communicate.
New research observing the behaviour of Bottlenose and Guyana dolphins when they interact with one another has suggested that the dolphins change the way they communicate and start to use an intermediate language.
When two dolphin species come together, they attempt to find a common language, preliminary research suggests. Bottlenose and Guyana dolphins, two distantly related species, often come together to socialise in waters off the coast of Costa Rica.
