New surprise: another humpback whale in the Mediterranean

Do you still remember the humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) that appeared in Slovenia (north Adriatic) in 2009? We've got more extraordinary news about this species. Colleagues from CE.TU.S Cetacean Research Centre informed us about a humpback whale sighting 1 km off the town Viareggio (Tuscany, Italy), on 27th August 2010. We immediately compared their photographs to ours and found out that this is not the same individual that visited Slovenian waters last year.
