The conjoined whales are linked at the waist with separate heads and tail fins. The creatures were weighing nearly half-tonne, as per information given by Benito Bermudez, a marine biologist and CONANP's regional manager.

Every winter season, a lot of whales do migrate from the Bering sea to the warmer seas, like that of Baja California.

In the last couple of years, about 1,200 gray whales were spotted in the said region.
