Adults can reach lengths of 48 to 62 feet and weigh about 40 tons. They are well-known for their long migration routes, often traveling thousands of miles between their feeding grounds in polar waters and breeding grounds in tropical or subtropical seas.

Humpback whales are famous for their spectacular breaching (leaping out of the water) and tail-slapping behaviors. They are also noted for their complex songs, which can last up to 20 minutes and be repeated for hours.
