Some social media users also asked if this was the same whale which was first sighed in May 2019 which was dubbed as 'Hvaldimir'. It was found with a camera harness marked 'St Petersburg' last year. It was extremely friendly and had caught the attention of Norwegian boats. The mammal looked extremely comfortable with human interaction. Hvaldimir had even returned a dropped cellphone from the ocean to fishermen. It even befriended a seagull and returned a fish that the bird dropped.
