What a Whopper! Rorqual Whales Pop In For a Visit

An aerial view of two enormous rorqual whales swimming along the coast between Dénia and Javea has been released today. 

Over recent years, there have been more and more sightings of these magnificent animals, and other breeds of whales, bathing, playing and just showing off to us in the fantastic way that only they can!

Rorqual whales are relatively streamlined in appearance and have pointed heads and small pointed fins. They can be distinguished from other whales by many (25-90) deep groves along their throats that expand when they feed. There are 8 species in total.
