An isolated population of Arabian Sea humpback whales may be less sophisticated "singers" than humpbacks elsewhere.

The whales' calls could be a simplified version of humpback song, scientists' preliminary findings suggest.

Arabian Sea humpbacks (Megaptera novaeangliae) are believed to have been isolated from other whale populations for around 60,000 years.

Very informative/educational video.. That was all new infomation to me, I didn't know any of that! Amazing.

Good post and wonderful creatures.

How confused would the scientists be if they sounded like "Mongolian Throat singers".
