And you thought happy hour was rough: The BBC filmed male humpback whales fighting it out for the right to mate with a female in heat. Watch the first video in particular, as the female signals her readiness by surfacing, rolling onto her back, and pounding the water with her fins. Then the males give chase, slamming into each other and actually trying to push other males underwater. Incredible stuff.

Meanwhile, the New York Post runs this amazing photo, originally from National Geographic, of apes at a Cameroon animal sanctuary who spontaneously gathered and watched in silence as one of their own, a 40-year-old female, was laid to rest.
