    Tail slap, obvious threat display:

    Tail sail in a breeding area:

    See if you can spot the difference.

      This, it's an obvious defence display because the dumb c**t is too close to her and her calf

        How has a whale instinctively developed a defense reaction to something outside of the water?
        Y'sure it ain't just sleepin'?

          so if she's not protecting her calf, what is she doing? offering him a handshake? Stop being moronic, homosexual.

            Tail sailing. They do it regardless of whether or not people are nearby
            >Stop being moronic, homosexual.
            Go watch a video of a humpback protecting its calf and see if they do a fricking handstand, moron

              but somehow you know don't you, fricking expert.

              All you whale experts should publish your secrets.

              Tell me, how would a whale tail slap without raising it out of the water?

                By turning on its back or raising it and slamming it down quickly, like how they usually slap their tails against threats. Threat displays usually also involve breaching and flipper slapping, not to mention the whale would likely try to leave the area before getting to that point

        You are a fricking moron. Baleen whales cool down by 'sailing' as they have a bunch of blood vessels close to the surface in their tail flukes. A defense/aggression display would be tail slapping with the whale facing whatever it is it perceives as threat. Get educated, c**t.

            >Tail Sailing can be sighted more regularly in the warm climates of the Humpbacks breeding and calving grounds with both adults and mother/calf pods seen displaying this behaviour. As they still have a lot of blubber they need to keep their body temperatures cool in this tropical environment. When a whale raises its wet fluke above the surface and allows the sea breeze to catch on the large surface area it works very similar to air-conditioning. Blood vessels close to the surface of the tail fluke are cooled by this breeze which in turn helps to cool the temperature of the whale.

          uhh wouldn't the tail cool down faster if it were in the water

            No because air is less efficient at holding heat than water. That's why dolphins can freeze to death when they beach in colder countries; I remember it happening with long-beaked common dolphins at a Canadian coast. The rescue team noted how they began shuddering and they were struggling to put them back in the water in time.
