Not only are they excellent swimmers, humpback whales are amazing acrobats and record-breaking singers!
These agile mammals can jump out of the water and twist their bodies round before falling back in, and male humpbacks have the longest and most complicated song in the animal kingdom. A single song can last for 30 minutes, and be repeated for hours on end.
