This calf was a joy to observe, as it pulled out all the tricks in the book- lobtailing, breaching, flipper slapping and rolling! What made it even more entertaining to watch was that he didn't quite have the hang of these behaviors yet. Most of the times he breached he landed on his back, but some breaches ended with a big belly-flop. His flipper slapping yielded some loud smacks on the surface of the water, but this calf also ended up just waving at the team and hitting his own body a few times. We were able to capture some of these behaviors on film! Enjoy!
