Ballenas jugando con delfines

Los cetáceos son una fuente de sorpresas.

Copio el texto que acompaña al video:

"Many species interact in the wild, most often as predator and prey. But recent encounters between humpback whales and bottlenose dolphins reveal a playful side to interspecies interaction. In two different locations in Hawaii, scientists watched as dolphins "rode" the heads of whales: the whales lifted the dolphins up and out of the water, and then the dolphins slid back down. The two species seemed to cooperate in the activity, and neither displayed signs of aggression or distress. Whales and dolphins in Hawaiian waters often interact, but playful social activity such as this is extremely rare between species. The latest Bio Bulletin from the Museum's Science Bulletins program presents the first recorded examples of this type of behavior. Visitors to AMNH may view the video in the Hall of Biodiversity until February 9, 2012.

  1. Pues yo he visto en docus peques primates de distintas especies jugando. No recuerdo si un babuino y... lo siento, no recuerdo quienes eran, pero lo ví, años ha!
    ¡Qué ricos, cómo juegan!

  2. Hola Efi, pues es un ejemplo muy interesante el que das, el de los babuinos. Se habla muy poco del comportamiento de juego en animales, no sé bien por qué.
