Longest whale journey

entertainment Updated: Oct 16, 2010 01:39 IST

A humpback whale has swum into the record books after travelling a quarter of the way around the world.

In the longest recorded migration by any mammal, the female whale travelled from the coast of Brazil to Madagascar, covering 6,200 miles. This is more than twice the distance humpbacks usually manage in a single migratory journey.
