Blue Whale

Illustrations of Blue Whales seen in various positions from the top, front and breaching

Blue Whales are the largest known animal in the world; growing up to 98' (30 m) and weighing up to 173 tons (157,000 kgs). They can be found living in the North Atlantic, North Pacific and parts of the Southern Hemisphere. Just like their name, Blue Whales have a long-tapered body and have a bluish-grey dorsal. Blue whales don’t have teeth, but instead have large baleen which help separate sea water from krill after they swallow. After separation, the water is is filtered back out of their mouths through the baleen, while air from their lungs is expelled through their blow hole.

The typical Blue Whale has an overall height of 13’-16’ (3.96-4.88 m) and body length of 82’-105’ (25-32 m). An average Blue Whale weighs between 55-165 tons (50-150 metric tons) and has a typical lifespan of 80-90 years.

Whales are large ocean-dwelling mammals ranging in size from the 8.5 foot dwarf sperm whale to the 98 foot blue whale, which is the largest creature to have ever lived. Whales are warm-blooded and have a layer of blubber to protect themselves from the cold temperatures of the oceans.
