Dale Dolphin Carnegie?

1930’s relationship expert Dale Carnegie teaches that everyone wants you to remember their name.  Bottle-nosed dolphins seem to have listened.  According to a story in ScienceMag.org  when pairs of dolphin friends were separated and able to hear but not see each other, often one would call out the name (click, whistle, beep)  of its unvisible pal.

“The scientists recorded one pair of males twice, once at the beginning of the project and then 12 years later. Even after all that time, each dolphin “copied the fine details of the other’s whistle, an indication of the pair’s especially tight bond.”

“Remember my name”! was a song from the play “Fame”.   I still remember “Flipper”.  Can’t wait for the YouTube vid, “How to Make Friends and Influence Dolphins”.
