The female has a choice in all of this,
too. She can pick her mate and they
always go for the bigger male, so their
genetics are pass on to their offspring.
It believed that some whales play song
to attract the female and the female
chooses that who sings the loudest.
If the female is not ready to copulate or
does not like her mate, she will bring her
Genital slits out of the water or try to find
a way for the male not to get close to it.
