The lonely whale  FEB 25 2011

A baleen whale that's been tracked by the Navy since 1992 can't attract a mate because his singing voice is too high.

To make matters worse, the high-pitched whale "does not follow the known migration route of any extant baleen whale species." The result, according to Dr. Kate Stafford, a researcher at the National Marine Mammal Laboratory in Seattle, is that the lonely whale keeps "saying 'Hey, I'm out here,'" but "nobody is phoning home."
