A bottlenose dolphin is the momma who adopted a baby. And, as it turns out, the one who got adopted is an unusual-looking male calf.
In 2014, researchers spotted a bottlenose mother caring for an unusual-looking male calf.
This was on line with what was presumed to be her biological calf and this happened in the coastal waters off the lovely and breath-taking French Polynesia.
Usually, bottlenose dolphins have slender beaks. However, the mysterious calf who is one month old ahs a beak that was short and blunt.
Eventually, scientists were able to identify the σrρhαn who was adopted as a melon-headed whale. The melon-headed whale is an entirely different species and genus of dolphins.
The baby whale is even spotted behaving like a dolphin or rather performing dolphin behavior now. It is as if it is being defined by the species it hangs out with, the company it keeps.
Unlike among humans, adoption is very υncσmmσn and rαrε among ωιℓd animals. If at all, it occurs the most between related members belonging to the same species.
The only other scientifically documented case that resembles this particular one involves an adopted orphan and a different genus was back in 2006.
In fact, the University of Sao Paulo primatologist Patricia Izar observed a group of capuchins taking care of a baby marmoset: “at the time, we were really really astonished,” she said.
Scientists are particularly intrigued by adoption in the animal world. And the reason you ask? It is because adoption is considered a uniquely human behavior.

Elephant Broke Down Crying As He Got Rescued After 50 Years In Chains
A few years have passed but this majestic elephant’s story still touches the hearts of countless animal lovers worldwide. People called him “the crying elephant”, because he literally cried when he was rescued. And as he cried, the world cried with him.
Raju was only a calf when some “humans” stole him from the wild, and he had been living in endless torture since that fateful day. For 50 years, the poor animal was chained and abused in a horrible way that we could hardly imagine. He had changed twenty-seven owners, but all of them treated him as a money-making machine and often beat him brutally even if he listened or not.
Raju was exhausted, both mentally and physically. No one cared about his pain and there’s absolutely nothing the sad tusker could do about it. He was convinced that the few inches these chains offered were the only freedom he could get.
After five decades living in hell, luck finally smiled upon Raju when the Wildlife SOS heard about his terrible living conditions. A team of volunteers immediately got on the road to reach his location, they had to rescue him at night for fear that his owner or his mahout would make it hard for them to take Raju away.
And as they removed the spiked chains, the elephant burst into tears. His cry broke the rescuers’ hearts.
Raju was brought to the Wildlife SOS’s Elephant Conservation and Care Center, where he could be able to enjoy a free life with plenty of love and care that he totally deserved alongside rescue elephants just like him. It took the luckless boy months to recover and open up his heart, which was truly difficult after everything that he had been through. But eventually, he made it. They made it.
Watch the touching rescue here:
Now that 6 years have passed and Raju is probably happier than ever. As the rescuer said, his spirit has “truly soared”.
Let’s take a look at his new joyous life:
Please share Raju’s moving story with your loved ones to help more unlucky elephants like him get rescued timely!
