Believe it or not, male whales have trendy tunes alike humans -- in fact, they modify their songs to differ from their rivals during courtship, that results in the new tunes every year, a new study has revealed.

Researchers, led by the University of Queensland, have found that male humpback whales "change their tune" every year during their migration across the Pacific, the latest edition of the 'Current Biology' journal reported.

The study has revealed a striking pattern of cultural change over a large distance, with the rate, scale and even repetition unmatched in non-human culture.


And the most interesting part...


"The way whales change their song can be compared to how humans follow fashion trends -- someone starts a new trend and before you know it everyone starts wearing the same thing," she said.


I take this as my goal of a content contributor here. I love to find examples of how animals and humans behave are very parallel to each other.

We have spent a lot of our history trying to separate ourselves from the rest of the animal kingdom, and we are starting to figure out now that we have many equals out there.

These are my favorite stories to share and I hope you all enjoy them.


Any thoughts?
