More than 140,000 users have watched footage of a dog meeting a humpback whale that swam up to the deck of a boat off the coast of California. Video posted on Monterey Bay Whale Watch Facebook page.
In the video, a one-year-old Australian Shepherd named Skipper (skipper) saw a humpback whale for the first time.
“A very very rare event when a whale came so close, but sometimes it happens. The boat did not move, and the whales decided to approach”, said a spokesman for Monterey Bay Whale Watch in California.
At this time of the year, whales prepare for migration and sail to the Costa Rican and Mexican coasts.
“Sometimes we we see rivalry between male whales, sometimes it is friendlier behavior, and sometimes they just eat up and come back with full stomachs,” the company representative explained.
Humpback whales grow up to 15 meters in length, live up to 90 years and considered one of the most active species of baleen whales.
Back in 1988, representatives of the International Union for Conservation of Nature believed that humpback whales were in danger of extinction, but thanks to a ban on commercial whaling, their population began to recover i.
