Cyrano

Cyrano was named for the Cyrano de Bergerac because her dorsal fin looks like a very large nose. Her offspring Cleopatra, is still nursing. Researchers don’t know exactly when Cyrano was born, but estimate that it was around 1989. Her first calf, Pinocchio, didn’t survive, but Cleopatra is doing very well. Cyrano spend most of her time in deep water in Whale Bight, not far from the researcher’s base.
