Teeth is a longstanding resident humpback whale to Gitga'at Territory, and one of the most recognizable whales in our research area. She is usually seen on her own or in very small groups traveling close to the shore and rolling in the abundance of kelp beds along the way. She was named after the teeth marks that appear across her left fluke, which are most likely an indication that she survived an attack by transient orca. These teeth marks will be with her for life but they certainly have not slowed her down. Indeed, they are a sign of her true strength to survive. We learned Teeth was female when she arrived in 2014 with her first calf. Teeth has had a number of calves since, and returned to Gitga'at Territory as a mother once again in 2023.
