Right Whales are almost indistinguishable from the closely related
Atlantic Northern Right Whale and the North Pacific Right Whale,
with only some minor skull differences. They may have fewer callosities
on their head and more on their lower lips than the northern species.
behavior unique to Southern Right Whales, known as sailing is
that of using their elevated flukes to catch the wind. It appears
to be a form of play and is commonly seen off the coast of Argentina.
