A Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) causes a large splash after completing a spy hop. A whale spy hops by vertically bringing the top half of their body out of the water. It is amazing to see something this large come out of the water with apparent ease, and cause an immense splash upon landing even on a large spy hop rather than a full breech.
These whales can grown to upwards of 52 feet and weigh as much as 50 tons. They are also responsible for majorit of the more beautiful the 'whale songs' that have become synomous with the general public.
