Newborn gray whale spotted by whale watchers


Whale-watcher Alisa Schulman-Janiger says that she and colleagues observed a baby gray whale 1.5 miles off Palos Verdes on Friday that may have been just born. "It was the coolest thing ever. If we had been there a half-hour earlier, we probably would have seen it coming out of its mom," she told Pete Thomas. "You could see the pits in its face and fetal folds in its head."
