On the Research Front: Dolphins Let Each Other Finish Their Sentences

Researchers at the Karadag Nature Reserve, in Feodosia, Ukraine, recorded two Black Sea bottlenose dolphins, called Yasha and Yana, talking to each other in a pool. They found that each dolphin would listen to a sentence of pulses without interruption, before replying.
Amazing.  But I wonder if dolphins in New York would do this.
