A new study says dolphins in Ireland may have an ability to recognise and identify themselves.
The Irish Sea Life Society (ISLS) has been studying dolphins and studying their social behaviours for almost 40 years.
Now they say the dolphin’s sense of identity is not innate, but is a learned trait.
The ISLS say that dolphins are able to recognise the shape of objects and people, as well as their personality.
This makes dolphins unique to their environment.
They say dolphins in the wild are not the same species as they are in captivity.
The dolphins in captivity are not able to distinguish people from objects.
They also don’t know when and where their owners are.
Dr. Mark MacKinnon from the ISLS says that dolphin behaviour is a learning process.
The more they learn about other dolphins, the more they can be trained to recognise each other, he says.
He says this is what gives dolphins their ability to know their own identity.
This is a process where dolphins are trained to learn, but we’re still not completely sure if dolphins are really learning.
The researchers say that the dolphins’ identity is formed by an interaction between the dolphins and their owners.
The owners are trained in the behaviours that dolphins use to identify each other and their owner, Dr MacKinnen said.
When the dolphins are allowed to go out and see each other again, they learn to recognise their owner.
The scientists say this is the basis of their knowledge about dolphins.
“These animals are not just animals that can be picked up and put on display, they are part of the family,” Dr Mackinnon said.
The research was published in the journal Animal Behaviour.
Dr MacKay said he hopes the research will help people to understand dolphins better.
“Dolphins have an incredible capacity for learning,” he said.
“We know that dolphins can be taught to recognise humans, they can also be taught their own names.
They can be educated and they can even be trained.”
The ISLS is now using video cameras and underwater microphones to record the dolphins behaviour.
The cameras will be put up on the shore and the underwater microphones will be fitted with electrodes.
These electrodes will be used to record whether the dolphins feel comfortable being identified as dolphins or not.
They will also be able to record if they recognise people.
The Dolphins are very good at recognizing people in their environment and also when they are together.
They recognise the face of a friend when the dolphins swim alongside each other in the water, for example.
DrMacKinnon says dolphins will also start to recognise people as they move from one area to another in their life.
“They are very intelligent animals,” he added.
“This is a very natural process.”
The researchers are hoping to collect data on the behaviour of dolphins and the dolphins that live in their care.
They are also planning to do research on how dolphins use sound.
