This sighting took place in the South-Eastern seas off of the South African coast. This act of leaping out of the water is called “breaching” by the experts. It is known to be a form of communication for groups of whales at far distances. It is the same as the tail slap done by the whales much often, but that is considered as communication for shorter distances.

These amazing creatures use these communication methods which most of us humans cannot even make sense of. But that is the beauty of nature and the animal kingdom. It is so diverse and amazing that we should cherish every part of it.

And the footage of Capeheart is definitely something to marvel at. Check it out below and leave your thoughts about this in the comments section below.
