   There's no way to speak for all animals, but there is evidence that some animals do have ways to differentiate each other. Some parrots, for example, seem to identify themselves with specific sets of peeps, and it's possible their parents give them those names. Sweet, right?

   And parrots aren't the only animals we suspect name each other. Dolphins also have distinctive whistles that function similarly to names. To prove this, researchers played a variety of whistles to a group of dolphins, and the individuals only replied to their signature sound, as if they were calling back when their name had been called.

   Animals can name each other in their language. They produce sounds which can be recognized by the member of their species. They have possibly name of one another which we are unable to comprehend. The animal language and animal behavior is very interesting and Jane Goodall has done a lot of work on animal behavior.

   I have often wondered about this when I was very young when I questioned: 'do animals have intelligence?' I quickly came to realize that it is impossible for an animal to have had any intelligence whatsoever. It would of had to have a vocabulary and vowels. That way it would be able to name itself.

Can animals understand other animals?

   User Avatar 
   To a limited degree. Two dogs understand the difference between "I'm mad at you" (snarling) and "I like you" (wagging tail). Honeybees, upon finding flowers, return to their hive and do a dance which tells the other bees in the hive the direction to fly to get to the food.
