Large Humpback Whale
One of the most musical of whales, the humpback is known for its elaborate song patterns. The humpback is also known for its 'dancing' abilities, including diving, spy-hopping and breaching. It's a baleen whale in that it ingests large quantities of zooplankton by straining the tiny organisms through its baleen. This piece is a mini sculpture of great detail, incuding the baleen creases, double blow hole, tubercules. The length from nose to tail is about 56 mm. See also medium humpback whale.
