A rare “megapod” of humpback whales was recently spotted off the coast of Australia, something that might have happened only once.
Simon Millar, owner of Sapphire Coastal Adventures, said it was only the second time such a megapod of whales has been seen in Australia.
- “It was incredible,” he told CNN. “We saw the whales swimming all around the area. They were just everywhere. We were very lucky.
- “The sight and sound was really something.”
Miller said he spotted the whales in waters where humpback whales often swim through during the year when they’re making their return to Antarctica, according to CBS News.
- “Last year, this exact same week, we had a mass aggregation of humpback whales,” Miller said, according to CBS News. “What that is, is where you get a megapod and it’s where you’ve got more than 20 whales at the time feeding on a particular area.”
