Humpback Whales

Updated: May 4, 2023

“Megaptera” is a Latin description of their “large winged” appearance as they fly through the water (or even through the air) on white flippers over a third of the length of their bodies. The second part “novaeangliae” means from New England and refers to whaling history and where the ships that commonly killed them were based.
