Re: HUMPING ARCHAEOCETES (SNIGGER)

     When killer whales go up onto iceflows after seals, and when 
     performing at Sea World, etc, what do you call the surface locomotion 
     they do that has them pumping up and down with their front ends as 
     they lurch forwards?  Is this also "humping" and wouldn't the fact 
     that Orca do this today in the wild falsify the above statement?
