Footage reveals hidden whale world

A study that attached cameras with suction cups to the backs of Antarctic whales has revealed never before seen feeding habits and social interactions.

In a new study by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Oregon State University in March, scientists in remote Antarctica have attached cameras with speedometers and suction cups to the backs of minke and humpback whales.

The stunning footage has revealed feeding habits and social interactions, while also shedding light on the way whales use their blow holes to bluster breathing holes through the ice.
