The power of the Whale Tail

By Whales1 Comments Off

The tail or caudal fin of the southern right whale possesses one of the most powerful natural forces of the animal kingdom. He shows this in every jump he takes, by taking 3/4 of his body out of the water of more than 40 tons. The caudal fin is formed by a fibrous tissue that is joined to the body by the caudal peduncle formed by powerful muscles. The tail of the adult whales reaches a wingspan (width) of 5 meters.

Many times in the sightings one sees them with the tail outside, without making force. They stand vertically and pull out the tail, they can float in that position for hours. He comes out to breathe every few minutes and returns to the same position a moment later. This behavior is known by its term in English “Tailing”, scientists argue that this behavior could be due to a thermoregulation technique, or also as a pre-delivery position, it is possible to see mothers who before birth have incredible volumes, with the tails out of the water.
