BigCleft was first photographed in 2005 and has been photographed consistently since then.  BigCleft has been identified on both the right and left sides and is a presumed mother based on photographs with an accompanying calf.  BigCleft has unique markings that indicate this whale was either entangled at some point or was possibly involved in a ship strike.
