Sperm whales adopt deformed dolphin in North Atlantic
Scientists have discovered a pod of sperm whales in the North Atlantic Ocean that seems to have adopted a dolphin with a spinal malformation.

Behavioural ecologists Alexander Wilson and Jens Krause of the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries in Berlin found the mixed-species group off the island of Pico in the Azores in 2011, ScienceNOW reports. Over eight days, the scientists spotted the bottlenose dolphin swimming with the whales a further six times, nuzzling against them.

"It really looked like they had accepted the dolphin for whatever reason," said Wilson. "They were being very sociable."

Sperm whales aren't known for creating bonds with other species, National Geographic News reports.

Researchers presented several theories as to why the whales, known as fierce squid hunters, allowed the dolphin to swim with them in an upcoming paper in the journal Aquatic Mammals.
