just yesterday read that dolphins call each other by names, although this article abstract with its science-speak avoids putting it that directly, this is what it says:

I watched a doc about dolphins a while back. I wish that I could remember the exact one so I could reference it but I can't, sorry.

Anyhow, it talked about a pair of dolphins that were raised in captivity their entire life. They had never been separated for more than a day or two.

One of the dolphins became ill and died suddenly. I'm not sure why.

The remaining dolphin began to show signs of distress and was obviously depressed. It stopped eating regularly and did not want to interact with other dolphins that it was allowed to play with from time to time.

In its depression, the dolphin committed suicide. What?!?

Researchers concluded that this was indeed the truth. Remember that unlike us, marine mammals have to make a very conscious decision to breathe. It ate a final meal. Swam around in vigor for a few hours than came up for one last gulp of air. It then went to the bottom and never came back up.

Assuming I gave an accurate interpretation of the facts, does this sound like suicide?
