WHAT IS THE HUMPBACK WHALE?


The Humpback Whale is an endangered species due to excessive hunting in the last few centuries. Humpbacks are 35 to 48 feet in length and 65 tons. The female is also much larger then the male because it needs the extra space for gestation of young. There were once over 200,000 humpbacks in the oceans of the world but today there are only about 6000 left.



The Humpback is also able to live to 95 or even 100 years in the wild. The humpback eats krill which is a shrimp-like crustacean and small schooling fish such as herring and mackerel. The humpback will eat between 2000 and 9000 pounds of fish everyday. The humpback whale song is only done by the males. They are known for throwing their bodies out of the water and scientists are not sure weather it is for courtship or a play activity.

Whales mate during their winter migration to warm waters and the gestation period is eleven to twelve months after. The baby calf is usually two tons in weight and measures up to thirteen feet in length. The humpback whale was first hunted in the 1920's. Before that time the humpback was too massive and fast for fishing ships to catch them. But the harpoon gun and factory ships allowed for their hunting.
