From June to September, their migratory path brings them near to the tropical waters of Holbox and Contoy island, located in the north of the Yucatan Peninsula, and one of the few areas in the whole world where they are visitors.

They are very dociles creatures, eating only plankton and do not attack humans (do not have teeth !!)
