BREACHING WHALE: Whales' surface behaviors consist of lunging, porpoising, spyhopping, lobtailing, and breaching, among others. When a whale breaches, at least 40 percent of its body comes out of the water, making it momentarily airborne. Right, Humpback, and Sperm whales breach the most. A 40 ton whale seen here crashed into a South African couple's yacht on July 18.
