Humpback Whale

Series of front, top, and breaching drawings of a Humpback Whale

Humpback whales are one of the largest mammals in the ocean growing up to 16 meters (52 feet) and weighing up to 30 tons. Their name “Humpback” comes from the shape of their dorsal (back) fin and the way it looks when its diving in the water. Humpback whales can be found in all the oceans around the world. They like to tropical waters and subtropics to give birth. Humpback whales aren’t very social and usually live alone, in rare cases, they are in a small group of 2 or 3 other whales to migrate or feed.

The typical Humpback Whale has an overall height of 8’-9’8” (2.44-2.97 m) and body length of 43’-52’ (13-16 m). An average Humpback Whale weighs between 27.5-33 tons (25-30 metric tons) and has a typical lifespan of 45-100 years.

Whales are large ocean-dwelling mammals ranging in size from the 8.5 foot dwarf sperm whale to the 98 foot blue whale, which is the largest creature to have ever lived. Whales are warm-blooded and have a layer of blubber to protect themselves from the cold temperatures of the oceans.
