An Unexpected Interaction between Two Southern Residents – 9/05

Early in the morning off of San Juan Island, we were just drifting watching the whales. We spotted two Southern Resident Killer Whales very close to the boat amidst some bubbling, whirling water. I couldn’t figure out what was happening and thought that maybe they were fighting. All of a sudden one of them emerged on his back, with a huge penis draped across him. We then knew that they were not fighting but interacting in another way all together! It was pretty amazing!
