Hailey's powerpoint

  1. 1.  Did you know that blue whales can be up to 100 feet long?  They are the world’s largest mammals.  Blue whales use tail flukes to swim in the ocean. Flippers help them steer.
  2. 2.  Blue whales often spend summers feeding in polar waters and go on long migrations toward the equator as winter arrives.  Between 10,000 and 25,000 blue whales are believed to still swim the world’s oceans.
  3. 3.  Blue whales eat about 2,000 - 9,000 pounds of krill per day. That’s like eating 8,000 – 36,000 cheeseburgers per day to eat the same amount that blue whales eat.
  4. 4.  Baby blue whales are called calves. The adult stage begins the moment the mother leaves the child.  Their average life span in the wild is 80- 90 years.
  5. 5.  Blue whales’ predators are people.  Groups of orcas (killer whales) have been known to attack and kill young blue whales.
  6. 6.  A blue whale is the largest animal that ever lived on this planet. They can reach 100 feet in length. Their length equals the length of two school buses.
