Breached Birth

"Breached Birth" | Humpback Whale Calf | Salish Sea | British Columbia | Canada

About a week ago I posted a picture of mom doing a full breach. Just a moment after mom breached, her calf decided to copy. Humpback calves when born are between 10-15 feet long and can weigh as much as 1 ton. The gestation period is 12 months and the calf will stay with mom after birth for about the same amount of time. Each calf will consume around 50 gallons of milk per day and can gain up to 100 lbs in weight per day.
