Dr. Elise Nowbahari, of the University of Paris, says non-human animal rescue behavior is far more common than people think.
Nowbahari’s research, published in the January 2010 issue of Communicative and Integrative Biology, suggests that animals such as monkeys, dolphins, fruit bats and even ants have an instinct that causes them to put themselves in harm’s way for another animal without the promise of any direct reward.
Monkeys will drive away an attacker from a vulnerable female or infant and fruit bats help other fruit bats give birth.
Here are ten examples of animals using their rescue instincts to help human beings in distress.
