(Whales can be identified by their
marking on the tail fluke. This one
we called Smiley. You see why?)
The tour leader was
quite excited and explained us,
that it is already some
years ago that he saw such a
headstand. As the whale came up
again he waved at us extensively
again and began the second
headstand. This time even
longer; I estimate 5 minutes.
This time, he probably relaxed,
because he dropped his tail
fluke in a horizontal position.
Again right in front of my seat.
Finally, he made a third headstand,
but this time, to the astonishment
of everybody, far over ten minutes.
Possibly the whale would have stayed
even longer with us, but now the
captain directed the boat to the
harbor, because we already had
exceeded this trip a lot.

We got a brochure about the whales
to take home and I would like to
publish some information. Of course
I looked after the meaning of the
headstand and I found this following
information: If whales sing, they do
this in the headstand. They extend
their flippers on that occasion.
Normally this happens in a depth of
20 to 35 meters, but there we could
not have seen him. I therefore
assume that he sang some song for
us. Unfortunately, we couldn't hear
Information from the brochure:
- Whales come into the Caribbean
every winter (Dec, March) for
reproduction. They live here without
any food - for months. From February/April,
they move again northward to the
large fish swarms to finally eat.
-In the bay of Samana and
surroundings, approximately 10 000
humpback-whales come annually .
Those become 15 meters long and a
weight of 40 tons. (Blue whales are
bigger: 30 meters and 140 tons. Not
present at Samana.)
- The whale songs are composed from
sentences and topics. Sentences are
sound groups like "Uuuup uuup jap",
that they repeat a couple of times.
Similarly sounding sentences are
grouped to a topic, from those exist
3 to 9. Sentences and topics always
are sung in the same sequence.
Songs can last until 40 minutes, the
length depends on when the singer
must get air. So, the song of an
adult singer can last double the
time, as this of an adolescent, who
needs to breath every 15 minutes at
the surface. However both sing the
same piece and breathe at the same
point in the song, however the one
repeat each sentence more often than
the other one, that's the only
All singers of the western North
Atlantic sing the same piece. The
mating time is started with the hit
of the last year, and then moves on
to a new piece.
The whale area in the Dominican
republic is a protection area and I
understood that whale hunting was
not allowed in the Atlantic for the
last years, but this seems to change
now. Japanese got the rights for
whale hunting already from some
Caribbean islands and the massacres
should start soon.
Smiley's reaction reminded me of an
extrasensory perception, that I had a
long time ago: If we succeed in removing
the negative energies again from our
planet, the relationship human-animal
will alter completely. A harmony and
communication, hardly conceivable for us,
might come back again. Mosquitoes and
parasites will probably vanish or change
their habits. And as well the
relationship human-plants can change
completely. Communication and
cooperation could be possible.
