Hippo    rescues wildebeest and baby zebra from strong currents.

Quote
This extraordinarily helpful hippo in Tanzania's Mara river saved both a wildebeest and a baby zebra from being swept away by the strong currents as they began their migration to the southern Serengeti. The hippo would position himself downriver of the animals and nudge them along to the other side. After the hippo helped the baby zebra make her way to a little river island, he waited until she made it across safely. Says Tom Yule, and expedition guide who filmed the ordeal, "The hippo got out of the water and came up behind the foal and started nudging it and gently biting it on its backside as if to say, 'Come on man, don't give up now, you can do it. Just a hop, skip and a jump and you're there.'"

Rottweiler saves his chihuahua friend from a hungry coyote intruder. 

Quote

 When Trixxie the chihuahua was left alone for a moment in her driveway one morning, a coyote thought she looked like a pretty tasty snack. It would have been curtains for the little dog had Happy, her Rottweiler neighbor, not intervened. Luckily, the coyote saw the big dog and made for the hills, leaving Trixxie free to run back to her home.

"A herd of elephants stayed in silence for two days after the death of Lawrence Anthony – the man who saved them. Exactly one year after his death, to the day, the herd marched to his house again. It is something that science cannot explain."



Yep. Science is WOEFULLY anthropocentric in its bias towards animals. IOW, "science" is NOT objective in rating animal intelligence, empathy and memory BECAUSE it has been sold on the "apex predator = clever, scheming, conscience free plunderer for resources" world view that Darwin's Standard Theory of Evolution (SET) pushes.

Gentle, social animals are NOT considered that "intelligent". That is a huge mistake. Maybe someday, science will get its head out of its Darwinian predator worshipping ass.

For as much as we empathize with our canines, we have been stingy about recognizing empathy elsewhere in the animal kingdom, reserving it as a human trait.

Crows are very smart.  8)

An 8-year-old girl receives gifts from the crows she feeds  ;D

By Walter Einenkel for weinenkel
Daily Kos staff Tue Mar 03, 2015 at 01:17 PM PST

Eight-year-old Gabi Mann has been feeding crows in her family's Seattle backyard garden for about four years now. It started as an accident:

Gabi's relationship with the neighborhood crows began accidentally in 2011. She was four years old, and prone to dropping food. She'd get out of the car, and a chicken nugget would tumble off her lap. A crow would rush in to recover it. Soon, the crows were watching for her, hoping for another bite.
As she got older, she rewarded their attention, by sharing her packed lunch on the way to the bus stop. Her brother joined in. Soon, crows were lining up in the afternoon to greet Gabi's bus, hoping for another feeding session.

A couple of years later, Gabi and her sister began setting out food for the crows on a daily basis. It was after this ritual began that gifts started to appear.

The crows would clear the feeder of peanuts, and leave shiny trinkets on the empty tray; an earring, a hinge, a polished rock. There wasn't a pattern. Gifts showed up sporadically - anything shiny and small enough to fit in a crow's mouth.
One time it was a tiny piece of metal with the word "best" printed on it. "I don't know if they still have the part that says 'friend'," Gabi laughs, amused by the thought of a crow wearing a matching necklace.

There has been ample research done over the past few decades that show that birds, specifically crows, are considerably more intelligent than first thought. As for Gabi's gifts?

No doubt, Gabi's collection is quite impressive. She considers them her treasures, and she meticulously stores, labels, and categorizes each object in a bead storage container. One bag contains a broken light bulb with the caption, "Black table by feeder. 2:30 p.m. 09 Nov 2014." Other objects include paperclips, buttons, earrings, and worn glass. One trinket, a screw, is marked as "third favorite," because as Gabi puts it, "You don't see a crow carrying around a screw that much. Unless it's trying to build its house."
