Humpback whales are one of the largest and heaviest animals in the world. Very gigantic indeed! The normal weight of a completely developed grown-up is around 80,000 pound, which is about the same weight of 24 grown-up hippos, however that didn’t stop the gigantic well in the video beneath from putting on an amazing air show when it jumped totally out of the water in South Africa a few days ago
The recording was shot in the Indian Ocean off the shore of Mbotyi by Craig Capehart, a scuba diver who was sitting in an “rubber duck” inflatable boat when the beautiful giant chose to show up. He estimate that the whale weighed around 40 tons, yet the weight plainly made no difference to this wale.
“No other mature humpback wale was filmed before jumping entirely out of the water till now! An extremely rare occasion, in fact,” composed Craig in the video title. “Dolphins and even Great White Sharks have been seen flying out of the water, yet this is a first for a grown-up humpback whale!”
