On strange behaviour

I was watching BBC's Planet Earth live ( the other day and I came across something pretty special. Not just the Meerkat Ernesto who survived being bit in the face by a Cobra but this clip of humpback whales defending a Grey whale calf .

This is not the only time this has been spotted;

I am not going to try to explain this behaviour - I am not sure I have the expertise to do that! But it does make me think about other, strange behaviours which animals sometimes have.

Brings me back to a few mini research ideas I have had over the past year - revisiting my snails and looking at fear.

One of the reasons I love science- so many odd things that crop up.
