Humperdink is a female whale that was first photographed by the photo-ID team in 2005. Humperdink is also a satellite tagged whale that no longer displays the scars that some of the other satellite tagged whales display. She was tagged in 2000 and all that remains is the bowl shaped scar on her dorsal ridge. Humperdink is a presumed mother based on photos taken with an accompanying calf.
