The Numbers Dolphins remember each other's calls for more than 20 PHOTOGRAPHY BY ALTUS WILDER years. Elephants aren't the only ones who never forget: Even after two decades of separation, bottlenose dolphins recognize the whistles of their former tank mates. According to Jason Bruck, a zoology professor who researched the animals' behavior as a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Chicago, the sea mammal's memory is integral to its community life: "They have a fission-fusion social system, meaning they disband and reform social groups." Dolphins often team up with a companion or join a large pod to hunt and feed, gravitating toward familiar faces. Feasting on fish: It's always better among friends. NOVEMBER 2014 SOUTHWEST 51
