The humpback or gubarte (Megaptera novaeangliae), also called humpback whale, is one of the larger whales, adults have a length of 12 to 16 m and an approximate weight of 36 000 kg. The species has a distinctive body shape, with long pectoral fins and knurled head. It is an animal that often acrobatic jumps on the surface then hit the water. The males emit a complex song, which lasts for ten to twenty minutes and is repeated for hours at a time. The purpose of the singing is not clear, however, seems to play a role in mating.
It is distributed by all the world's oceans and seas; typically migrate up to 25 000 km each year. The humpback is fed only during the summer in the polar regions and migrate to tropical and subtropical waters to breed and give birth the pups during the polar winter.
