Humpback Whale (Megaptera Novaeangliae)
Humpback whales are found in every ocean in the world. Their latin name,
Megaptera Novaeangliae, means "big wing of New England." These marine mammals are known for their magical songs, which travel for great distances through the world's oceans. Only male humpback whales "sing" - their song is the most complex in the animal kingdom. Although humpbacks are relatively slow swimmers, they are powerful, using their massive tail fin to propel themselves through the water.
