Humpback whale

Megaptera novaeangliae

Description:

The most amazing wildlife encounter I've ever had with this Humpback whale jumping out of the water with almost two thirds of his huge body out. It did it three times just in front our boat. Its newborn calve was near by. Everybody was so amazed and happy at the same time.

Habitat:

The sea.
