  • 4. What are whales?
    Whales are sea animals just like fishes and other sea animals. But whales are much bigger than other sea animals. Whales are mammals called cetaceans. Here is a picture of a diver having a close up of a right whale.
  • 5. The sperm whale
    The sperm is a whale that has an enormous boxlike head. Sperm whales easily dive over a mile beneath the surface of the sea to catch the giant fast-moving squids they prey on. The squids may hide or flee but the whale just whale just sucks them in.
  • 6. Blue whale
    The blue is the biggest mammal on earth. It is as long as three buses and as heavy as 25 elephants. Everything about the blue whale is huge. The heart is the size of an automobile. A person could walk through the biggest arteries. Fifty people could stand the tongue. And it eats four tons of food every day. Here is a short video of a blue whale feeding on krill. Blue whales also eat tiny creatures and plants called plankton.
  • 7. The gray whale
    Despite the name this whale is more black than gray. Every year it migrates 6,000 miles from the Arctic to California and Mexico. It is 40 to 50 feet long.
  • 8. Humpback whale
    This whale’s back is not humped. This whale only lives in the Arctic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean.
  • 9. Beluga whale
    Sometimes the beluga whale is called the white whale because the whales are almost pure white.
  • 10. Right whale
    Because so many right whales are hunted there are very few left. A right whale is 50 feet- or about half as long as a the blue whale.
  • 11. Orca
    Shiny black with a white belly, the orca (also called the killer whale) lives in all the world’s oceans. It measures from 20 to 30 feet in length.
  • 12. Poem
    Whales, Whales, Whales,
    Orcas busy catching preys,
    Humpbacks busy nursing their young
    Blues busy eating food
    Sperms busy chasing squids
