Who are these whales?
Blips has been spotted in 2000, 2004, 2008, 2009, and 2017! Blips got their name because of a game of telephone through the plane radio the whale was sighted from. The researchers on the plane described Blips as “continuous callosity with lips” but it was heard as “velocities with blips.”
