Humpback whales are incredible social animals who live and ‘work’ together. The enormous creatures need as much as two tons of food a day. In this amazing drone footage you can see the whales singing before their lunch and working close together in a fishing technique called bubble-net feeding.
Bubble-net feeding requires 6 to 20 whales, a group of whales swim in a shrinking circle blowing bubbles below a school of fish. One whale breaks off from the group, circling below the fish and blowing bubbles at the same time. The whales swim upward through the bubble net, opening their mouths wide, catching thousands of fish in one gulp.
