Dolphin saves pygmy sperm whales

12 March 2008 One Comment Home » Animals | Pets, Science

Zooillogix mentions this great AFP story of a bottleneck dolphin leading two apparently confused pygmy sperm whales to safety after becoming stranded on a sandbar.

Said Conservation Department officer Malcolm Smith: “I was not aware dolphins could communicate with pygmy sperm whales, but something happened that allowed Moko to guide those two whales to safety.”
