How intelligent are animals in terms of understanding when a human or any other species needed some form of assistance? There have been plenty of reports of dolphins rescuing humans from drowning.

In this comedic skit, a man pretended to be drowning. A dolphin soon helped him to reach ‘land’ where he was resuscitated by a sea lion. The result was hilarious because of the man’s exaggerated actions.

When he revived, he moved to the edge of the water to thank the dolphin who had initially ‘saved’ his life. Jealous of the attention on the dolphin, the sea lion moved to assert his position as the main lifesaver.
