Lucky is a humpback whale known in British Columbia for a fluke sculpted by the hungry chisel of orca tooth.

Catalogued in regional databases as FIBB-1BB169 and CRC-18138, this maiden has been sighted in the Salish Sea in 2022 and the calving waters of Nayarit, Mexico in 2017.

The tail is an appendage without skeletal scaffolding, and such injury leaves a fluke deformed but still functional for propulsion and travel.
