It appears that humpback whales are the superheroes of the sea.  Their primary nemesis? The orca.  What are the humpbacks defending?  Justice!  Oh, wait... not justice.  Seals!

This is quite impressive... and unique.  It is easy to understand why humpbacks defend their young from orcas, but why would they go out of the way to defend seals and sea lions?  Could it be that these animals are very similar in shape to young humpbacks?  Or maybe these giants actually do care for other forms of life...
