Happy Valentine's Day, BABY!

February 15, 2007
This brand new baby humpback whale is only a matter of a few hours to a couple of days old. It may have even been born on Valentine's Day. Notice how clean (no whale lice) and white this little guy is? Be that as it may he is already trying to learn the delicate art of the breach. Time and again he musters up all of his strength to try and clear the water, but he is still too small to get it right just yet. It won't be long though, and soon the sky will be the limit. As a special treat mom brought this little babe under the drifting boat for a look at a very different mammal...US!
