Rare whale phenomenon is captured by drone; check out

A rare event was recorded in Antarctica by Piet van den Bemd, polar guide and photographer. With a drone, he captured images of whales-humpback in a movement similar to the Fibonacci sequence.

This pattern, known for its spiral shape, was identified by the Italian mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci and is observed in several elements of nature.

Whales make Fibonacci sequence

In the content, the cetaceans appear in a synchronized dynamic, thus creating a pattern in the water that resembles the famous spiral. These movements generate blue bubbles, contributing to the formation of the pattern.

The occurrence of phenomenon during whale movements is unusual, so the filmed shaking was a remarkable coincidence captured by van den Bemd.

Piet described the scene as a ‘mesmerizing dance’ in his Instagram post. He highlighted the beauty and natural synchrony evidenced by the whales’ behavior. See below!

Humpbacks apply bubbles as part of their hunting strategies. They dive and expel these bubbles upwards, this forms a kind of ‘wall’ that confines the fish in a small space, making feeding easier.

Normally, this process is led by a whale, with the others collaborating to trap the whales. fish. The leader blows the bubbles while the others surround the fish, forcing them to the surface in a spiral pattern.

In this specific event, bubble compounding accidentally resulted in a shape that resembles the Fibonacci sequence.

Furthermore, the discovery of this behavior in Antarctic waters has led scientists to question what they know about humpback whale migration.

This is because Antarctica is a place where these animals go to reproduce and, supposedly, they avoid feeding during this period (consequently, they do not hunt).

It is believed that such an event could even be a form of play for some of the cetaceans, which suggests an even greater complexity in their attitudes and intelligence.
