Did you know? Baby whales might look small on our clothes but a baby whale can be 25 feet long when it is born and will grow up to be 100 ft long and weight as much as 300,000 lbs- That’s a whole lot of what to love! #whalefacts #liveoceanpositive #savetheplanet #savethewhales 📸 by @maaikephoto

#WhaleFactWednesday is back—as was a lone gray whale headed south, spotted last week in Dana Point. This is very odd—we don't normally begin seeing gray migrating south until October at the earliest. We have yet to see if this was an oddball gray, or if the warmer waters are bringing an early migration. What do you think? 🐋⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #graywhales #whalewatching #whalefacts #whaleseason #whalelovers #danapointca #danapointharbor #danapoint #visitoc #visitdanapoint #visitcalifornia #ocfamily #ocparents #familyfun #ockids #kidfriendlyoc #ocevents #orangecounty #trivia

We are smack bang in the middle of whale watching season here on the Tweed Coast. Every year about 7000 hump back whales make their 10,000 km annual migration up to the warm waters of Hervey Bay to have their young. And man oh man, were they out in droves this weekend! Love this amazing shot by @twodogsphotography1 capturing 2 whales out front at Casuarina 🐳

Unlike grizzlies (ursus arctos), which hibernate through winter, polar bears (ursus maritimus) are most active in the winter. They are, like whales and seals, marine mammals. They spend months at a time wandering ice floes and hunting in pitch black. They can do this because their sense of smell is exceptional. A grown bear can smell a seal pup under a meter of ice from two kilometers away. #natureismetal #polarbearfacts #whalefacts #bearwith #climatechange @natgeo

Fun whale fact! The odontocetes or “toothed whales” only have 1 blow hole, and the mysticetes or “baleen whales” have 2. In toothed whales their 2nd blowhole became modified to focus sounds and aid in echolocation through the melon on the top of the head. These whales use their bio sonar to locate prey, and vocalize to communicate with each other!! #whalefacts #sciencerocks #cetaceanlove . . . @bcwhaletours @tourismvictoriabc @explorecanada @hellobc #whalewatching #blackzodiacs #orca #yyj #lovewhales #ocean #salishsea #adventuretourism #nature #wildlife #ecotourism #beautifulbc

MUM AND CALF 🐋 It always amazing me when I see the size difference between a mother and calf. While a full grown adult can get up to a massive 60ft a newborn calf is between 10ft to 15ft and will grow throughout the first 10yrs of their lives.

Whales are the largest creatures on our planet. But did you know that we killed about 2.8 million of them in the 20th century? As a single being we are small but as a population we have a huge impact. Let's make that impact positive and help save the earth and not destroy it. . . . #whale #whalefacts #savethewhales #savetheplanet #plasticfree #plasticfreelife #plasticfreeliving #recycledart #recycledjewelry #conservation #oceanconservation #boho #bohojewelry #beachstyle #litterfree #environment #savetheocean #keepouroceansclean #keepourbeachesclean #surfstyle #oceanlove #naturelover #colorful #beautiful #jewelrywithpurpose #marineconservation

Like humans, baby Orca whales live and hunt in large groups called “pods.” Babies born into these pods remain dependent on their mothers for several years.

This is a photo of a momma humpback whale and her calf. The calf had come up the surface for a quick nap, so momma positioned herself between Baby and the big boat that I was on to make sure her little one could catch some zz’s. The naturalist on board let me know that baby calves will nurse for 12 months on mom’s super rich, fatty milk. Towards the end, calves will begin eating fish for the sole purpose of learning how to eat. Their nutrition still comes from mom’s milk during the time that they’re nursing.

Repost from @greatwhaleconservancy ・・・ Contrary to popular belief Orcas are not a type of whale, they are the largest sub-species of dolphin. ... A female Orca can live to be 100years old. ... Orcas can stun sharks with sound, therefore they can kill any shark. They are also the number one apex predator in the ocean, meaning, they are at the very top of the oceanic food chain. Orcas have never been known to have a predator prey relationship with Blue Whales, leaving Blue Whales as the only whale an orca will not hunt. … Video by Galen Fishbach-Waters … … …. … … Respect the rights of all that share this planet WITH us not FOR us!

Happy Wild Wednesday! Did you know that the blue whale is the largest animal inhabiting earth? This marine mammal averages 70-90 feet in length and weights up to 100-150 tons! To help visualize, the blue whale is about the length of three school buses! So... what do these giants eat? Blue whales mainly eat krill, or small shrimp-like creatures that grow up to three inches long. On average, a blue whale will eat two to four tons of krill a day during the feeding season.

Source : coolcosmos :”Staying Cool and Keeping Warm To stay cool, warm-blooded animals sweat or pant to loose heat by water evaporation. They can also cool off by moving into a shaded area or by getting wet. Only mammals can sweat. Primates, such as humans, apes and monkey, have sweat glands all over their bodies. Dogs and cats have sweat glands only on their feet. Whales are mammals who have no sweat glands, but then since they live in the water, they don't really need them. Large mammals can have difficulty cooling down if they get overheated. This is why elephants, for example, have large, thin ears which loose heat quickly. Mammals have hair, fur or blubber, and birds have feathers to help keep them warm. Many mammals have thick coats of fur which keep them warm in winter. They shed much of this fur in the summer to help them cool off and maintain their body temperature. Warm-blooded animals can also shiver to generate more heat when they get too cold. Some warm-blooded animals, especially birds, migrate from colder to warmer regions in the winter.” _______________________________________________________ Source URL : http://coolcosmos.ipac.caltech.edu/image_galleries/ir_zoo/coldwarm.html ________________________________________________________ #knowledge #interesting #interesting_image #interestingfacts #funfact #facts #whale #whales #whalefacts #whalefact #sweatglands #sweat #whalewatching #whalewatching🐳 #whalebeach #whaleart #whalewatch #whaletattoo #whalebone #whalelover #whaletale #whalelife #whaleofatime #whaleseason #whalesharkdiving #whalediving

Humpbacks have twin blowholes and the top of its head and lower jaw have knobs called stovebolts or tubercules. Each bump contains a coarse sensory hair follicle that may act like the whiskers on a dog or cat. Thanks to Bernie Uhlich for letting us share this snap he took of a #humpback on a tour with us earlier this week.

Whales in Alaska. There are 8 species of whale that visit the freezing cold waters of Alaska, mostly the Humpback whale. Alaska waters are rich in krill which humpbacks love and eat roughly a ton of food a day! They migrate to Alaska from hawaii. Cold waters for feeding. Warm waters for giving birth. They travel 3000mi in just under 30 days. Unfortunately there are roughly only 13,000 humpback whales left and about 600 visit Alaska and some even stay all year. For one month of the year you can spot Orcas, also known as Killer Whales which are known to catch a swimming moose or two, but usually stick other sea creatures. The killer whale has no natural predators for they will eat sharks and other whales. You'll also spot Belugas, Grey, Bottlenose, Fin, and Sperm whales throughout the year. ° Unfortunately all the whales we saw where getting ready for a dive. And just so you know a whale usually only breeches unless it is has been scared. 🐳🌊🐋 ° ° #Whales #WhaleMigration #Whale #SeaCreatures #Animals #Nature #SeaLife #ExplorerOfTheSeas #Explore #OptOutside #TheZ3nSloth #WildernessCulture #NaturesBeauty #TheLastFrontier #Photography #WhaleFacts #PhotosOfTheDay #History #TheMountainsAreCalling #BeautyAllAround #DiscoverEarth #IWasBornWild #WildAndFree #PlanetEarth #EarthsCreatures #Alaska #AlaskaAdventures #Travel #AlaskanCruise #WhaleWatching

Even though blue whales are the largest mammals in the world, they don't have ANY teeth! They only eat tiny shrimp called krill, so they don't need teeth.
