Until today, even the scientists are not able to translate the true meaning behind their unique sound. It is considered as one of endangered animals since the whaling (whale hunting) became popular. in the 18th century. It was caused not only by spears but also by modern hunting technologies to sound pollution under the sea by drilling machines.
