Whales and dolphins playing together

I started the morning with a very cute cat video here, and went on to watch the following extraordinary video clip :

It’s very short, but raises all sorts of questions, such as, if the two biggest water based mammals can play with each other then what sort of communication must take place to allow that to happen?

Dolphin: Hi whale, can I use your nose as a slippery slide?

Whale: Sure little guy, go ahead. I’ll be gentle.

Dolphin: Wheeeeeeee!

And that leads to the question – if all this is happening out in the wild, how much more have we missed? And how much more do we need to learn about our neighbours on this lovely planet?

Good morning,
