Caption: Humpback whale. Artwork of a humpback whale calf (Megaptera novaeangliae) diving past fish. Young humpback whales are born after a gestation of a year and are weaned after 11 months. The humpback whale is known for its elaborate vocalisations. This baleen whale has up to 350 large baleen plates, formed from bristles, hanging down from its jaws. It feeds by swallowing sea water and then pressing its tongue against the bristles, pushing the water out and trapping krill and fish. Fully grown, a humpback whale weighs around 27 tonnes and can reach 15 metres in length. They are found in deep water in all of the world's oceans.
