Orca Mother and Calf Play in Monterey Bay

A killer whale and her calf were captured playing in Monterey Bay, California, on September 2.

Video filmed by Evan Brodsky with Monterey Bay Whale Watch shows a smaller whale and a larger whale, the latter of which was identified by the California Killer Whale Project as 21-year-old CA140B, otherwise known as “Louise.”

According to the California Killer Whale Project, Louise has three offspring who range between three and ten years old. The project said Louise was “looking quite robust,” and after consulting with their scientific advisor, speculated that she may be pregnant again.
