Researchers at the New England Aquarium and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution managed to film a group of Omura Whales for the first time in their natural habitat near the island of Madagascar. The species, which can reach 12 meters in length and weigh 100 kilos, was discovered based on the remains found by Japanese scientists in 2003.

In 2010 alone, the first cetacean species were sighted, although some experts have confused it with the bryde whale species. Three years later, 13 omura whales were located in deep water, which was proved based on collected genetic material. Since then, 44 individuals have been sighted.
