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