According to new research, dolphins not only interract with humans, but also with whales!
It has been understood for many years that dolphins and whales are incredibly intelligent, and playful creatures. However, a photographer named Lori Mazzuca has recently spotted a bottlenose dolphin and humpback whale becoming especially close in Hawaii.
The dolphin was riding on the whale’s back, and Mazzuca observed them playing together- the dolphin testing how long it could stay balanced on the humpback whale’s head as it swam along.
A powerful swimmer the dolphin appeared to be as it slid down the whale’s back, tail-first before maneuvering its way back on top for another ride.
This is some friendship the two are beginning to form, and here is the incredible video so you can see it for yourself.
