Experts confirms that dolphins have their own language!

Scientists have discovered that dolphins have accents. They have confirmed that dolphins living off the coast of Wales whistle, bark and groan in a different dialect from dolphins off the western coast of Ireland.

A Masters student at the University of Wales analysed 1882 whistles from the dolphins in the Shannon estuary and bottlenose dolphins in Cardigan Bay in Wales. The study found 32 different sound categories, of which eight were only produced by the Shannon animals.
