A study conducted by the University of Mississippi shows that pregnant dolphins 'sing' to their young in the womb. This same sound continues to be sung up to two weeks after birth. According to scientists, the mother’s goal is to teach the calf to recognize the call and encourage it to have its own whistle-signature.

The dolphin’s song is the way it is recognized and accepted in the group. Research indicates that these mammals can remember a call of a single dolphin even after 20 years of separation. After two months, the calves begin to learn to make new sounds.
