Humpback Making A Splash - When Humpback Whales Propel Themselves Above The Water Then Splash

The humpback whale is one of the larger species of whales, with adults ranging in length from 12–16 m and weighing around 25–30 tons.

The humpback has a distinctive body shape, with long pectoral fins and a knobbly ‘hump’ near it’s head which is where it gains its name.

When, humpback whales propel themselves above the water then splash back into the ocean it is called “breaching.” Some scientists think they do this to push off the parasites on them, but other findings suggest they just do it for fun!

This great breach was captured by @chasedekkerphotography off the coast of California, USA 🐋 What a great capture!
