Inspirational Mammal

I was so thrilled that Simple Joys nominated me for the Animal Series, the image came to my mind right away was the caring humpback mom. So I answered the nomination with warm feeling in my heart. Simple Joys at https://vanessarosecooper.com has a joyous blog; her tag line is the 4 Ls, Let Go, Love, Laugh, Live. She is always so positive. Please do visit her blog.

The Rules Are:
1. Thank the person who nominated you
2. Pick an animal and explain why they are a source of inspiration to you, and how their character can be used to motivate.
3. Nominate at least 3 other bloggers, to share the positivity!

Here is the mammal that inspires me:

The humpback whales inspire and motivate me by their intelligence, interaction, cooperation, endurance and caring for the young.

Humpback whales typically migrate up to 25,000 km (16,000 mi) each year. They feed only in summer, in polar waters.

They are feeding on tiny shrimp-like krill, plankton, and small fish. Its most inventive technique is known as bubble net feeding; a group of whales swim in a shrinking circle blowing bubbles below a school of prey. The shrinking ring of bubbles encircles the school and confines it in an ever-smaller cylinder. The whales then suddenly swim upward through the “net”, mouths agape, swallowing thousands of fish in one gulp.

Humpbacks migrate to tropical or subtropical waters closer to the Equator to breed and give birth in the winter when they fast and live off their fat reserves.

The migration is a long journey. Humpbacks are powerful swimmers, and they use their massive tail fin, called a fluke, to propel themselves through the water and sometimes completely out of it.

These whales, like others, regularly ‘breach’. This is when the whales leap from the water before landing with a tremendous splash. Scientists aren’t sure if this breaching behavior serves some purpose, such as cleaning pests from the whale’s skin, or whether whales simply do it for fun!

Humpback whales are known for their magical songs, which travel for great distances through the world’s oceans. These sequences of moans, howls, cries, and other noises are quite complex and often continue for hours. Scientists are studying these sounds to decipher their meaning. It is most likely that humpbacks sing to communicate with others and to attract potential mates.

When female humpbacks give birth to the calves, the mothers and their young swim close together, often touching one another with their flippers with what appear to be gestures of affection. The mothers also lift up the calves to the surface so they can breathe. Females nurse their calves for almost a year, though it takes far longer than that for a humpback whale to reach full adulthood. Calves do not stop growing until they are ten years old.
