Nursing calf whale

Simeon Oliver recants one of his most unusual experiences (Son of the Smokey Sea, pp. 110-111): "…as we approached, we saw a baby whale, perhaps twenty-five feet long, lying on its slide just below the surface of the water. This bouncing baby was butting its head against its mother as a small calf will butt a cow when nursing. . Occasionally the big whale would move forward a little way and the young one would follow eagerly after its dinner."
