Dass Delfine eine eigene Sprache nutzen wird seit langem vermutet. Jetzt haben sie festgestellt, dass die Viecher während des Lösens von Rätselaufgaben miteinander „sprechen“ und kommunizierende Delfine die Aufgaben schneller lösen, als einzelne, nicht kommunizierende Delfine: Dolphins have a language that helps them solve problems together. Und jetzt frage ich mich, ob die sich auch Stoner-Tipps für die besten Kicks beim Kugelfischlutschen geben. Wahrscheinlich schon.

when the dolphins worked together to open the canister, they made more vocalisations than they did while opening the canister on their own or when there was either no canister present or no interaction with the canister in the pool. Importantly, the researchers were able to show that the increase in chatter was directly related to the canister-opening task as opposed to social interactions between the dolphins.

During the trials when one dolphin opened the canister unaided, one or more of the other dolphins was present nearby, watching the task. On these occasions, there was no increase in chatter. The team concluded that the increased chatter during the joint canister opening was related to the task itself, and not to the presence of another dolphin.

“This is the first time that we can say conclusively that dolphin vocalisations were used to solve a cooperative task,” says Eskelinen.
