Lobtailing Print E-mail
Humpback whales will often have their head down in the water and stick their tales (flukes) out of the water, wave them around, and then forcefully slap the surface of the water. No one really knows why they do this, but it is thought that the loud noise lobtailing produces may serve as a warning to other members of the pod or as a form of communicating their whereabouts.
