Southern Right Whale and Her New Calf

2. Aug
2013

Shown here is a photo of mother and calf Southern Right whales. The Southern Rights come right into the protected beach of Flinders Bay to breed, rest, protect and nourish their calves. They like to lay around like a log but then will pop up to check us out every now and then.

This particular day we saw a big group of 12 Southern Rights including 2 calves within half a mile of each other!

You can also see our photo of a Southern Right spout. They have a distinctive V shape to the spout that comes from their 2 blow-holes. Their spout is also much bigger than the Humpback Whale which is not surprising, given the difference in size.
