This video shows several still images of bottlenose dolphins and humpback whales playing together. These images were taken in two locations around the Hawaii Islands, where scientist witnessed the dolphins riding the nose of the humpback whales. It is reported that there were no signs of aggression and it seemed purely playful. It is also stated that both the dolphin and the whale seemed to participate in the playful game. This Bio Bulletin presented by the Museum’s Science Bulletins program presents the first recorded examples of this type of behavior.
