Whale caught on camera off Iran’s Kish island, Persian Gulf

On a rare occasion, a whale has been spotted and filmed getting close to the shores of the southern Iranian island of Kish, in the Persian Gulf, perhaps foraging for food.

Although the Persian Gulf is a habitat for whales, they are rarely caught on camera so close to the island.

Whales are among the most skilled swimmers and can swim up to 48 kilometers per hour; hence they need over 200 kilograms of meat per day to fuel their cruise.

They are peaceful mammals and there have been no reports so far of their attack against humans.

Whales are social and some of their groups have parents within families, which form the most stable families among all animals.
