Time for a SEUS 2015 mom update! Just as we all hoped, there are still more calves being born down here. Here is some info on the new moms:
#1611 (Clover): a 29 year old female, her mom is #1034. This is Clover’s 4th calf.
#1950: a female first seen in 1989 making her at least 26 years old, though nothing is known about her year of birth or family history. This is her 5th calf.
#2611 (Picasso): a 19 year old female, her mother is #2610. This is Picasso’s 3rd calf.
#3139 (Diablo): a 14 year old female, her mother is #1039 (Links). Links’ mom is #1316 (Whiskers). This is Diablo’s 2nd calf.
#3693: a female first seen in 2006, making her at least 9 years old, but this is another whale we know little about. This is her first calf.
No info on pedigrees for any of these moms, but another huge shout out to the New England Aquarium and the Right Whale Catalog for everything we do know. For info on the other moms down here this year, see our first Who’s Who blog post. More soon!
