Southern Right Whales

One of the three whale species that regularly come to our bay is the Southern Right Whale, affectionately known as the “Fat Boy”. On any given year we can have 20-40 animals come to visit our bay and we can have as many as five calves born in our bay. The animals travel north from the sub-Antarctic to calve or breed. This journey is one of the longest mammalian migrations known. The calves will stay with their Mom’s for 3-4 years before Mom will mate again. The gestation period is 11-12 months so the cows will return to the warmer, calmer South Africa waters to have their calves.

    obviously like your web site however you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to tell the truth on the other hand I’ll definitely come back again.
