It’s common knowledge that Humpback whales can grow to a colossal size but not many know exactly how big they can get. They usually weigh in at about 80,000 pounds which is equal the weight of 40 adult elephants.
However, their astounding size doesn’t from exhibiting mind-blowing aerial feats and in the video below, you can see a fully grown Humpback whale jumping so high that its entire body is above the sea.
The incident was recorded by a Craig Capehart who was scuba diving in the Indian Ocean, near the coast of Mbotyi in South Africa. He gives a rough estimate of the whale’s weight as 40 tons but this clearly does not act as a barrier to the mammal of gigantic proportions that has more grace than many humans.
While people recorded various other creatures like Dolphins and Sharks doing the same feat, this is the first time that we see a fully grown Humpback whale doing this.
