Baby pilot whale "has conversation" with human

Nov 12, 2017

An adorable clip has emerged from the Canary Islands, Spain of a baby pilot whale approaching a small boat and appearing to converse with a person on board.In the clip, which was filmed earlier this month, the baby swims slowly up to the inflatable dinghy and begins to respond in squeaks when the filmer speaks to it softly in French."What are you telling me?" The filmer asks.After a few moments, the baby whale swims off with its mother."I've known these babies since they were born. They know the sound of my boat, the mothers too, so I think they trust me," the filmer wrote online."If I approach quietly, they come by themselves to my boat to say hello."
