  Humpback Whales are an animal species that appear in the enhanced version of Grand Theft Auto V


They are the largest animals in the game, possibly as big as a Benson. They don't attack the player, as whales in real life are inoffensive. Unlike real whales, they don't spray water from their blowhole. They appear near Del Perro Pier and Paleto Bay, but they are quite rare and you'll have to wait several minutes and even hours if you want to see one. Be careful not to be attacked by a shark!

Like the rat, the Humpback Whale can't be controlled after eating a Peyote Plant.

The Humpback whale cannot be killed in any way except being pushed ashore. No weapons, including miniguns, grenades and even Peyote-controlled killer whales can harm the creatures.
