Whale Anatomy 1.8

Each whale also has its own nuances in the shape of the dorsal fins or other structures. The dorsal fin of the Minke is a tall crescent, that of the humpback is a sloping “mesa”, the Blue a smaller crescent and the Gray, a bump followed by a “ridge” of knuckles. Also note the Humpback’s warty head and “Kirk Douglass Chin”.
