1. Humpbacks go to the Caribbean in the winter, but do not feed at all during that time. They live off that blubber ya all.
2. Humpbacks can live 50 to 70 years.
3. Humpbacks will hang out together in pairs called 'associations.' These associations may last days or months.
4. Humpback females appear to be fertile way past middle age, not like humans. You go girl.
