Sperm whales have names for each other

So apparently some scientists discovered that sperm whales use a unique clicking sounds to identify themselves and others when hunting. It was known that sperm whales had a unique code to identify themselves but the crazy thing is that they know the unique codes of each other so they can communicate to a specific whale. Weird...

  3. I always assumed all animals had some form of communication. Weather it is sounds or body patterns, I'm sure they get a message to eachother!

  5. Neat to know they have names. I wonder if the noise from ships and submarines distorts their language in insulting ways...
