BleachEyes was first photographed in 2005 as a calf accompanying its mother. It has been photographed consistently since then.  We noticed that this whale started developing a swayback in 2008 that has progressively gotten worse.  The cause of this condition is unknown. A biopsy sample from this whale confirmed that this whale is a male.
