The miniature whale is a Humpback that is 7cm long.
Humpback whale, Megaptera novaeangliae has distinctive knobbly protuberances on the head and long flippers making this one of the most easily recognised of the large baleen whales. Its name is derived from the hump under the dorsal fin, which is particularly noticeable when the whale arches its back to dive. It reaches a maximum length of 15 – 18m and weight of 40 tonnes. This is one of the most studied of the great whales as individuals can be recognised by characteristic black and white patterns especially on the underside of the tail.
