Granny, who was spotted by members of the Pacific Whale Watch Association (PWWA), is estimated by the Center for Whale Research to be 103-years-old. By all accounts, the matriarch is still looking healthy and strong.

Thanks for this article.I've watched J2 Pod but I didn't know about "Granny". It was interesting reading about her.

They say "That animals in captivity live longer then those out in the wild." This is showing everyone that its not true!
