Fluke Matching Game

This humpback whale was photographed by CCS scientists working on Stellwagen Bank. Try to identify the whale by comparing its fluke to images of four previously cataloged humpback whales.


Sorry, that is not correct.  Please try again

Look at the flukes again. Does the black pigment extend along the top of the flukes, or does it end partway across? Examine the lighter portion of the tail for a specific mark to compare and try again.
