Bottlenose dolphins are so crazy smart and cute we want to be friends with one!
We'd swim into the ocean and introduce ourselves, then, the craziest part is, they could introduce themselves to us: by telling us their name!!
Of course we'd only understand it if we spoke dolphinese but it's still a pretty cool fact.
A recent study published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B found that bottlenose dolphins have signature whistles and can use the signature whistles of other dolphins.
Not only can the dolphins call out to each other, but they can also call out in different ways.
It just shows that these creatures are so smart, they're able to pass back and forth so much information, not only just calling another dolphin, but maybe even saying who is calling.
The researchers have said they have much more to study but it is still a big find because something like this is pretty rare in the animal world.
Seriously, someone find us a dolphin so we can become besties.
