These images show how humpback whales make ‘nets’ from air bubbles. The animals swim in circles and blow bubbles with which they can catch their prey. The behavior would never have been filmed from two different perspectives.
The humpback whale needs a large amount of food to reach its daily energy needs. The rib plates ensure that they can filter their food from the water. In addition, whales have an excellent ability to work. For example, they invented the so-called “bubble net method”. This is a hunting method that requires a lot of cooperation.
