Deformed bottlenose dolphin adopted by whales

In case you haven’t heard about the bunch of whales who were spotted with a deformed bottlenose dolphin as part of the gang, hear it now: the inter-species meeting of mammals was sighted by behavioral ecologists from Berlin’s Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries about 15-20 kilometers off the Azores in the North Atlantic. The speculation is that the dolphin’s deformity probably caused it to fall out of favour with the other dolphins, which in turn led it to be adopted by the free-wheeling sperm whales.
