I had to stand on a cliff to watch some amazing humpback whales as they put on a show. they are such incredible creatures. i now understand why some people are addicted to whale watching.
facts: humpback whales are a migratory species and are known to make the most migration trips of any animal.
they can grow to 18m long and weigh up to 40 tonnes but they aren't the biggest whales. biggest whales are the blue whales.
they actually don't have a hump.
they feed in the polar waters and migrate to breed and give birth in the warm tropical waters.
Hoa's hanging around underneath the roof due to heavy rain these days on the island. he refused to join me on the bike to get some more interviews of those who have been brave enough to go on a whale trip this morning...fair enough!🤔 i need to keep going. research always comes first 😉 #phdlife#scientist
