Researchers found that bottlenose dolphins whistle for loved ones.
By Vetstreet

A new study finds that bottlenose dolphins call out the names of certain other dolphins when they become separated.

The research by the University of St. Andrews Sea Mammal Research Unit in the U.K. is based on acoustic data from wild bottlenose dolphins around Sarasota Bay, Fla., from 1984 to 2009, and on the study of four captive males at The Seas Aquarium in Florida.

The findings were published in the journal "Proceedings of the Royal Society B."
