Humpback Whales are known for their acrobatic displays, including breaching and tail slapping, and their complex songs that can last up to 20 minutes.

Fun Fact: Humpback Whales are known for their unique feeding technique called bubble net feeding, where a group of whales will blow bubbles in a circular pattern around a school of fish, trapping them in a concentrated area for easier feeding.

They have a long, streamlined body with a bluish-gray color and a small dorsal fin. Their diet consists mainly of krill, which they filter through their baleen plates.
