Sperm whales shelter dolphin disabled

01/21/2013 According to international media reports, the German biologist witnessed a unique event in the Azores, where a group of sperm whales taken in their community dolphin disabled.

The animal marked defect of the spine, but it is now does not prevent him from living a full life.

Scientists have discovered a group of sperm whales Physeter macrocephalus species near the island of Pico, which is included in the Azores archipelago. The team consisted of a number of adults and their offspring. Suddenly of sperm whales, researchers found adult bottlenose dolphin species Tursiops truncatus.

The dolphin was severely curved spine, but he actively played with marine predators. Sperm whales, scientists say, were not against ordinary neighborhood, answering dolphin reciprocate. Such communication between individuals of different species found in nature is very rare, and between sperm whales and bottlenose dolphins similar case was recorded for the first time.

This is a very unusual event, given the fact that schools of dolphins often attack sperm whales, and can prosecute the juveniles of this species.

According to scientists, it is unlikely that the dolphin came in a pack of sperm whales, escaping from predators, as they are extremely rare. Likely to suffer physical damage made it impossible to swim fast, which is why bottlenose dolphin with a disability is not able to live in a pack of relatives and with time found a new family.
