With long pectoral fins and a bumpy face, the humpback whale is a curvy creature.

Close in size to the grey whale, the humpback whale migrates fifteen thousand miles per year. Feasting during the summer, this whale lives in polar waters. Creative in getting their next meal, humpback whales team up to create a bubble net to trap fish. To do this, whales must swim in an ever-shrinking circle, blowing bubbles. Then, the whales swim upward, catching their fill of thousands of fish. This can be done with about ten whales in circles with diameters of one hundred feet. In the winter, whales take up residence in tropical waters where they mate or give birth to calves that are the length of their mother's head and weighing over one ton. During this time, whales are living off of stored energy. Distinct in their vocal calls and fins, humpback whales are unique mammals.

Fun Facts: Humpback whales' tail fin can be one third of their total body length.
