In one of the biggest achievements of ocean scientists, the Omura, an exclusive species of whale which is so rare has been documented for the very first time ever by an international group of scientists. Although scientist has predicated about its existence a decade back, but it’s now been discovered.
So what is the actual matter?
The Omura occur in remote regions and they are so difficult to find at sea because they are small compared to blue whale that can be above 100 feet long. Omura whale is comparatively small and its length varies between approximately 33 feet to 38 feet.
Approximately 25 Omura whales have been photographed along with mothers and claves. Scientists also recorded their song-like voices.
