Humpback Whales :: Baleias de Bossa

When I think about whales I always have the image of the immensity of the oceans with graceful creatures swimming in, as if they were in a giant playground.

Humpback whales, with their fabulous acrobatic displays seem to be especially playful. Males can also sing for days in a row to impress their companions, and I imagine that following them on their annual journeys between the northern hemisphere and the warmer breeding grounds must be a joyous adventure!

Quando penso em baleias tenho sempre a imagem da imensidão dos oceanos com criaturas graciosas a nadar, como se estivessem num parque infantil gigante.

As baleias de bossa, com as suas fabulosas demonstrações acrobáticas parecem especialmente animadas. Os machos também cantam durante dias a fio para impressionar as companheiras, e imagino que segui-las nas suas viagens anuais entre o hemisfério norte e as zonas mais quentes seja uma aventura deliciosa!
