Whale watching in Mauritius
On the Mauritian coast, two different types of whales can be seen, the humpback and the sperm whales.
The humpback whale is a Baleen whale. One of the larger rorqual species, adults range in length from 12–16 meters (40–50 ft.) and weigh approximately 36,000 kilograms (79,000 lb). The humpback has a distinctive body shape, with unusually long pectoral fins and a knobby head. It is an acrobatic animal, often breaching and slapping the water. Males produce a complex whale song, which lasts for 10 to 20 minutes and is repeated for hours at a time. The purpose of the song is not yet clear, although it appears to have a role in mating.
The Sperm Whale is the largest species of toothed whale, with adult bulls (males) growing to be about 15-18 meters (50-60 feet) long, and weighing about 45-70 tons. The two kogiid species are much smaller, at only around 2.5 to 3.5 meters (9-11 feet) in length, and weighing 350-500 kilograms (770-1,100 pounds). The body of sperm whales is robustly proportioned, with paddled-shaped flippers.
