Octonauts’ treasure hunting wouldn’t be successful without Mitch and his friend’s help. This giant but very friendly Humpback Whale is undoubtedly a charmer in the real world! With that, here is Mitch of Octonauts in real life.
Let’s start by comparing their appearances. Both the real-life and animated version have either black or blue backs and a white belly. And just so you can get a grasp of how massive these animals are, Humpback Whales can grow up to 60 feet and weigh up to 80,000 pounds, according to Oceana.
Let’s now delve into their abilities. From what we have read on National Geographic, Humpback Whales perform “songs” that can travel great distances. This is one way these intelligent creatures communicate with each other or attract potential mates. In the series, Mitch used this “song” to help save Kwazii.
Humpback Whales travel alone or sometimes in small groups. Live Science states that whenever they travel together, they communicate by touching each others’ fins; this is seen especially among mothers and their children. With that, we can definitely say that whales are affectionate.
Another thing is, Humpback Whales create “bubble nets,” just like in the series. According to DiscoverWildlife, this is typically done per group. Basically, these creatures dive deep and then spiral back up while blowing bubbles to disorient fish and trap them into tight balls.
Whales have special filters inside their mouths, which are made-up of fringe-like brushes that grow on their upper jaws. Once they take a massive gulp of water, fish are trapped inside, and the water is pushed out through the plates.
Their activities might surprise you and make you feel a little daunted but don’t worry; they might look intimidating, but they are gentle and non-aggressive animals.
