Here's an interesting article about a peculiar cross-species alliance: a bottlenose dolphin with spinal deformity that has been accepted by a group of sperm whales.

That is fantastic ! Wonderful ! Touching !

And we boast about humans being sooo good and exceptional !
Listen how they talk to/about the photographer.

It always makes me shudder thinking how Man has treated - and still treats - whales !

I saw this on another site and I could hardly believe it! Two animals that have such different habits and interactions and one adopts another! Great story and video, thanks for sharing.
