Ballena Franca Austral/Southern Right Whale

Eubalaena australis

Description:

La ballena franca, al igual que otros grandes cetáceos, tiene la costumbre de realizar espectaculares saltos sobre la superficie del mar. Se especula que estos saltos pueden ser parte de un código de comunicación, de una suerte de actividad lúdica o simplemente deshacerse de los parásitos que habitan sobre sus callosidades. The right whale, like other large whales , has a habit of making spectacular jumps on the sea surface. It is speculated that these jumps can be part of a communication code , a kind of recreational activity or just get rid of parasites that live on their calluses.
