"The toughest swimmers out there"
The Grey Whales were called Devilfish by early whalers because they defended themselves so fiercely. They give birth in the pleasant lagoons of northern Mexico.
The 5m long newborns struggle to breathe and swim, but the mothers help their calves by lifting them to the surface with her tail flukes. They 'spy-hop' during migration - raising their heads above water - probably to check the coastline.
- - A male weighs 16 tonnes
- - A pregnant female weighs up to 34 tonnes
- - Young Devilfish learn to swim in the shallows
- - They migrate 10 000km to their Arctic feeding grounds
Because they stay close to the shore, where the ocean floor is shallow, they were vulnerable from early whalers around Iceland and elsewhere in the Atlantic, where they were hunted to extinction.
- - Devilfish thrive in the Eastern North Pacific
- - Devilfish feed from the bottom of the ocean
- - They eat red crabs, small shrimp, herring eggs and larvae
