    Surrrounded by as many as 20 males, the female even encourages them to fight.
    And they do. Posturing, pushing and shoving one another, jockying for position, to be the prime escort for the female.

    In the end the largest and most dominant male usually wins, and is chosen to swim with the female hump-back whale.

    Sure.

    And for precisely the same reasons human females and males do the same dances.

    Actually I think that if you add a rock-music sound track, the first paragraph of the original post sounds like a pretty good description of a dance.

    Add a Kenny G sound-track, and you get the 2nd paragraph.

    What's revealing about it? We're humans, you're talking about hump-backs.

    Humans tend to be just a wee-bit different than, say, your average whale.
     
  10. i dunno... i thought it was amusing. go into a bar and just watch. i wish people in 'civilized' society would realize that their basic drives and motivations are exactly simular to that of other animals. i mean, i know we all know it... but just realize it. i honestly think it would change us, as a whole, for the better.
