Like every year, gray whales arrive to baja california from the arctic. some to breed, and others to give birth. it is the longest migration recorded in the animal kingdom. back when whaling was a thing, this species used to be known as "devil fish", because of their aggressive behavior while being hunted; now, just 100 years later, they can be one of the friendliest animals towards humans in the world.
