Humpback Whale belongs to the species of Baleen Whale that are renowned as one the largest creatures on the planet. The scientific name of the Humpback Whale is Megaptera novaeangliae.
These giant creatures grow up to 63 feet and weigh approx. 40 tons. Humpback Whales are found in every ocean in the world.
One thing that makes Humpback Whales unique is their magical songs, sequences of howls and cries that travel to great distances in the water. These sounds continue for hours and scientists are skeptical that these sounds are made to communicate with other whales and their mates.
