Bottlenose dolphin makes an unusual adoption in New Zealand

griseus:

A bottlenose dolphin has taken a new baby of another species under its flipper. It’s believed the dolphin, named Kiwi, lost its calf years ago after becoming stranded in an inlet near Kerikeri. But now Kiwi’s put her maternal instincts to use, watching over a common dolphin calf by the name of Pee-wee.
