    Wild Dolphins Observed Bringing Gifts to Humans

    Source: http://www.treehugger.com/natural-sc...sh-humans.html

    While it's already well known that dolphins rank among the most intelligent creatures on the planet, new research is suggesting that they just might be one of the most magnanimous too.

    A team of biologists recently published a study examining dozens of fascinating cases of inter-species generosity between dolphin and human, all taking place along the shore of Australia's Tangalooma Island Resort. According to their findings, wild dolphins have been observed bearing gifts, such as dead "eels, tuna, squid, an octopus" to wading humans on 23 separate occasions.

    I really want to see footage of this. I'm assuming they swim up to a human and deposit something like a dead squid in the water and swim off.
