Lost whale calf
According to the Associated Press, a humpback whale calf, lost from its mother off the coast of Australia, bonded with a yacht.
Apparently, the whale thinks the yacht is its mother. The whale followed the yacht out to sea and attempted to suckle it. According to the AP story, "The calf appears exhausted but rescuers hope it will continue out to sea and search for its mother or another pod of whales."
