You’re Whale-come

Whales are among my favorite animals on earth, especially the Humpback whale. Their communication songs are beautiful and they have several “bests” of the animal kingdom.

For example, their seasonal migration is farther than any animal on Earth. Serious swimming. And, their flippers can grow up to 16 ft (5 meters) long…that’s the longest appendage of any living thing on the planet! Imagine having 16 ft arms!

Mother and baby Humpbacks often touch flippers, which is thought to be for reassurance and possibly to show affection. How cute!

I wonder what it would be like to talk to a Humpback whale. I’m not sure what I’d say. I guess I’d start with, “Hello.”
