The Back Story
Each humpback whale has unique markings on the underside of its tail.
Scientists use these markings to identify individual whales. When
humpbacks “breach,” they thrust themselves upward out of the water,
creating a gigantic splash as they fall back into the ocean.
Humpback whales migrate each year, traveling great distances to find the
best feeding spots and breeding grounds.
Of all the whale species, humpbacks have the largest flippers – some of
which are more than 15 feet in length.
