Making Fluke Prints

Photo of gray whale migrating south to Baja California. Photo take Jan. 31.

Thank you Blue Ocean Whale Watch for this recent photo.

If people leave footprints, then what do whales make?  They don't have big feet, but they do have big flukes (their rear tail).  When that fluke hits the water it leaves a fluke print.  The white arrow show the fluke print this whale left behind.

Gray whale fluke.
