    Consider that at the time the picture was taken, that particular whale was one out of tens of thousands of that (Right Whale?) particular species, among others; that were swimming in the oceans of our planet. Now they have to be protected or they'll be gone.

    Nantucket Sleighride - term used by Nantucket whalers to describe what occurs immediately following the harpooning of a whale. “The whale, realizing it had been harpooned, would attempt to flee and thus drag the whale boat along with it. The speed of the “sleigh ride” would vary depending on the size of the whale, with larger whales giving faster rides. *excerpt from the book “You Wouldn’t Want to Sail on a 19th-Century Whaling Ship”, 2004
