Many species interact in the wild but most of these interactions are as predator and prey but this amazing footage captured in the middle of the oceans reveal the playful side to inter-species interaction.
This incredible drone footage shows two humpback whales swimming playfully in the water alongside an adult dolphin and her baby.
The pair can be seen breaching and gliding around the dolphins.
Their swimming almost looks like they are playing tag with each other!
Apparently, whales and dolphins have always had a friendly relationship as these two species are often caught interacting with each other in a playful manner.
Meanwhile, off the coast of Western Australia, a whale appears to play with a pod of dolphins
Since the dolphins are rolling with their bellies towards the whale, it shows a playful behaviour, not aggression
Each year, southern right whales travel thousands of kilometres from the chilly waters of Antarctic to the warm Australian coast but it seems that this one has a brief stop en route to have some fun with the pod of friendly dolphins
These heartwarming interactions are not common and quite rare to be caught on camera but they are certainly not impossible
These whales and dolphins just prove to us that it is more than possible for two different species to cross paths and have nothing but respect and love for each other.
