Excerpts;

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 on end.

Humpback whales are found near coastlines, feeding on tiny shrimp-like krill, plankton, and small fish. —National Geographic
