Minke Whale

Minke whales are the smallest of the baleen whales, and are in fact smaller than some toothed whales! Though size can be hard to judge on the water they are easily distinguished from other whales by the white “mittens” or patterns they have on their pectoral flippers. Sometimes called “stinky Minke” these whales do have a powerful blow for their size and the smell does carry well over the water.
