    • 2. This is a whale This is a cow How did a cow turn into a whale?
    • 3. Whales closest relatives are cows
      • Whales are thought to have evolved from a group of land animals that are classified as even toed ungulates which are commonly known as cows
      • In order for the whales to be able to live in the ocean rather than on land they had to evolve and adapt to that environment
    • 4. Adaptations that whales have to survive in the ocean
      • Be able to swim
      • Be able to live in cold water
      • Be able to hold their breath
      • Obtain food from the ocean (there is no grass in the ocean)
    • 5. Swimming Adaptations
      • Fusiform or football shape
        • The most efficient shape for moving through water
      • Tail flukes for swimming
      • Pectoral fins for steering
      • Dorsal fin that helps them stay upright
    • 6. Blubber an adaptation to live in cold water
      • Blubber is fat
      • Fat is insulation
      • Fat is also a food source
    • 7. Holding their breath under water
      • A whales nose is on top of its head and is called the blow hole
      • Whales can hold their breath for two hours
      • Whales do not store air in their lungs but in their blood and muscles
    • 8. Toothed whales and Baleen whales
      • Toothed whales eat fish or squid and use echo location to locate prey
        • A group of toothed whales working together to catch prey is called a pod
      • Baleen whales have rows of hairy plates which strain out plankton from huge mouth fulls of water
    • 9. Adaptations that whales needed to move from life on land to life in the ocean
      • How did they adapt from walking on land to swimming in the ocean
      • How do they keep warm
      • What happened to their nose
      • How did they adapt from eating plants to eating plankton or fish
    • 10.
