Now here's a whale of a tale, take a look. And take a closer look at ten-year-old Sarah Russell's reaction. Fishing with dad Shawn in conception bay off the coast of Newfoundland in Canada, two humpback whales weighing about 45 tons each suddenly left skyward. It was crazy. At first Sarah was scared, who wouldn't be. Now what do you think of that? But dad was there to reassure her.
We tried to stay our distance but they're curious and they'll come in to check you out. Whales are plentiful here but a whale ballet that's a different story. Little is known as to why wales breach so spectacularly but it is believed they are communicating with one another. Are you famous, Sarah, for telling fish tales? I catch the fish and dad tells the fish tale. And they did catch some fish once they had time to catch their breath.
Maybe we ought to go down to the library and check it out.
Dolphins use sound to communicate with each other.
