Whale Gives Birth In Front Of A Group Of Tourists

Tourists in California had a once-in-a-lifetime experience when they got to witness a 35-foot-long gray whale giving birth within close proximity. According to a Metro report, the whale-watching tour group was sailing with Captain Dave's Dolphin & Whale Safari in Dana Point, California. 

The sighting appeared at first to be a typical migrating gray whale. However, when the boat slowly approached the animal, the whale watchers noticed something different about its behaviour. Within seconds, a whale baby emerged through the bloody water and swam happily around her. The scene unfolded just a few metres away from the boat of a group of whale watchers, who were left in awe after witnessing the event, and many captured the sight on their mobile phones.  

The safari service also posted a video of this rare sighting on their YouTube channel. In the video, the mother whale can be seen pushing her newborn to the surface.
