July 11th, 2015: Moby Penis

Possibly the great, great, great, grandson of that leg eating Moby Dick.



Quote:
Scientists got a special thrill this week when they got to experience an unexpected encounter with a rare white humpback whale who made a surprising appearance off the coast of New Zealand. A research team with the New Zealand Department of Conservation (DOC) were out conducting an annual survey of humpback whales in Cook Strait to see how they are recovering after commercial whaling was banned in 1964. The whale they spotted is believed to be Migaloo, which is aboriginal for ‘white fella,’ who was first spotted off the coast of Australia in 1991 and has continued to make appearances there every year.
~~~
According to the survey’s leader Nadine Bott, only four other white individual humpback whales have ever been documented.
“Migaloo is the most famous and another white humpback whale was spotted in Norway this year. Migaloo is thought to have fathered two white calves which have been making appearances along Australia’s eastern coast. One has been named MJ, short for Migaloo junior,” she said in a statement.

Migaloo’s appearance in New Zealand during the survey has raised more questions about how migrating humpbacks are dispersing, but the survey itself has also brought hope for these amazing creatures. According to the DOC, this year brought a “spectacularly high count of humpback whales” with 122 spotted, exceeding the previous high of 106 in 2012 since they began counting those headed to their breeding grounds in the South Pacific in 2004.

If the Humpback Whale population is increasing, and they remain protected, there could be a million pods of them.
A herd of whales, an onslaught of whales, eating all the life in the ocean, then plotting together to wash people into the ocean with whale made tidal waves, destroying coastal villages, infrastructure, nuclear power plants... hey, wait a minute.
