The Humpback Whale is a baleen whale as it has a baleen as opposed to teeth as a filter for the food it catches.
The Humpback Whale is known to have a distinctive long pectoral fin or 'hump' that is not present in the other type of large whale, the Blue Whale.
Whales are a majestic sight. They are often spotted near the surface of the water, their large bodies soaring through the air.
While they are often seen in coastal areas, humpback whales can also be found in open oceans. These creatures make an incredible journey every year, migrating from tropical waters to colder climates to feed.
