Video: The Rarest Whale in the World

The Balaenoptera Omurai – aka Ombre’s Whale – is one of the rarest species of whales on the planet. In fact, scientists know very little about them, but have been trying to study them for years. This is one of the first times they have been captured on video, as researchers have been studying a pod of 25 individuals off the coast of Madagascar. As you’ll see, these large mammals are unique in shape, and utterly fascinating. It makes you wonder what other species of sea creatures are still out there, waiting for us to discover them.
