Ballena salta sobre un barco

ballenasaltando Ballena salta sobre un barco

Un velero, en Ciudad del Cabo – Sudáfrica, fue abordado por una ballena de un gran salto. El barco  “Intrepid”, iba tripulado por una pareja que salió ilesa, navegaban en la bahía de la ciudad. El cetáceo dio varios saltos y en uno de ellos se subió a la embarcación rompiéndole el mástil y el techo de la cabina. Las fotos fueron tomadas por otro barco cercano.
Ralph Mothes, uno de los tripulantes:  “Gracias a Dios el barco era de acero, si hubiera sido de fibra de vidrio nos habría deshecho: tenemos suerte de estar todavía con vida ” .

La ballena era una franca austral de 17 metros de longitud y 40 toneladas de peso. Se está investigando si al animal se lo molestó o provocó con anterioridad al ataque, hay testigos que declararon que ésta y otras dos embarcaciones más se habían acercado demasiado. 

Por otra parte esta especie es conocida por su falta de visión por los biólogos marinos, y entre sus juegos favoritos está el ir dando saltos, que unido a la escasez de vista podría haber sido la causa de la visita soprendente de este mamífero sin ser invitado.
Me quedo con la primera hipótesis.

Aquí está el vídeo de lo sucedido:

  1. Lo leí ayer en la prensa y las imagenes son impactantes, pobre ballenita y comparto que pudo sentirse acorralada, finalmente hemos invadido su espacio

    Besos amigo

  2. Yo me enteré de la noticia en la tele y también escuché que la estaban molestando, además si no hubiese sido así, que casualidad de tener preparada la cámara, no?

  3. Cierto Mexiñol…

    a cuento de qué iba a saltar una ballena encima de un barco, … a no ser que rodaran una peli, je, je.

    Gracias por el comentario.

  4. Sí Tani, parece ser que hay gente que lo pasa bien persiguiendo a los animales, lo bueno es que estos dos se llevaron una sorpresa.

    Gracias, y muchos besos.

    • (I’m not sure if I’m posting this in the cocrret place as I was unable to post it from the Dashboard.)The type of physician I would like to work with is a gerontologist. A gerontologist specializes in caring for the elderly. I have a fondness for our older population. They built out society and lived in a time that many of us can learn from. I would take great pride in caring for them as they age. In my opinion, working with a doctor that shares my passion and excitement would be the ideal work environment.The type of physician I would not be as excited to work with would be a proctologist. To be completely honest, I just don’t think I have what it takes to be in that environment. It’s important to be professional in any medical environment. I believe my sense of humor would not allow me to be as professional as I would need to be. I would also prefer not to work with ophthalmologist. Several years ago I spent a week with my grandfather at a specialist to have cataracts removed. I found it very difficult to watch the videos of my grandfather’s up coming procedures. It wasn’t difficult caring for my grandfather after surgery, but I must admit the pre-op was an experience that I would not want to assist in on a daily bases.

  5. Creo que has dado en el clavo Canoso, esto es como perseguir y provocar a los famosos para sacar unas buenas imágenes.
    Pues lo mismo con la ballena… ¡vamos a provocar un poco para que de unos saltitos!, seguro que pensaron.

    Gracias por la visita y el comentario.

  6. Normalmente los cetáceos van a su bola y de hecho huyen si hay varias embarcaciones porque no les mola que las miren si están comiendo (caso de las orcas). Si hay poquitas barcas pueden acercarse a cotillear como hacen los delfines, pero lo de atacar… lo dudo. Para mí que la estaban molestando con el ruido del motor o se habría herido antes con una hélice.

    • Thank you, I’ve recently been sehinarcg for information about this subject for a long time and yours is the best I have came upon till now. But, what in regards to the bottom line? Are you positive concerning the source?|What i don’t realize is actually how you are now not really a lot more smartly-favored than you may be right now. You are so intelligent.

  7. Since there is so many fields of sipicaltees that I have a choice of, I still really can’t choose one. So I am going base on my personal experiences. My original goal back in high school and maybe even before that, was to work in a Neonatal ICU! I had a brother that passed before he had his first birthday from heart complications, and that year I spent a lot of time at hospitals with my parents. My goal the first couple of years was to work with babies just like him. That was until I had my own children, I would of still loved to have worked in that career field but the heart ache I would most likely endure when one of those babies did not make it home. I could not have handled!On to more positive experiences, I have worked with the elderly and Geriatrics interests me very much. Being surrounded with people that have lived a fulfilled life is so much more rewarding. Even though at times it is the ending stages of their lives, and it is sad when someone does pass. It’s less of a heartache to know that most of the time they are ready to move on. They are still very dependent on you and when you are able to help them with their needs that’s the most rewarding of all, plus you form a special relationship with the patients and their families.

  8. I am new to building web sites and I was wondering if having your site title related to your content really that critical?
    I see your title, “Ballena salta sobre un barco | Noticias Sorprendentes ” does appear to be spot on with what your blog is
    about but, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and
    based more around site branding. Would you think this is
    a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of assistance would be greatly valued.
