BLUE WHALE

blue whale
The Blue Whale (Balaenoptera musculus) is a marine mammal belonging to the suborder of baleen whales. At up to 32.9 meters (108 ft) in length and 172 metric tons (190 short tons) or more in weight, it is the largest animal ever known to have existed.

 

KILLER WHALES

captivity to do various tricks for rewards. They are easily identified with their distinctive black and white patterning, a large and prominent dorsal fin, very sharp stout conical shaped teeth on their upper and lower jaws.

 

FIN WHALE

 

FIN Whale
The second largest after the blue whale, the fastest swimming of all the large whales (sometimes called the greyhound of the seas) and the commonest. Fin whales can produce sounds of 75-80dB at around 100Hz which is very loud for an animal source. In pre-propeller oceans this sound could travel for well over a hundred kilometres.

SPERM WHALE

 

Sperm Whale
The name comes from the enormous bulbous spermaceti organ in the head. Only males are found in Antarctic waters. Sperm whales are toothed whales rather than filter feeders and are the deepest and longest of all whale divers catching giant squid in the dark ocean depths.

 

BOTTLENOSE DOLPHIN

 

Bottlenose dolphin
Bottlenose dolphins live in groups called pods that typically number about 15 dolphins, but group size varies from solitary bottlenose dolphins up to groups of over 100 or even occasionally over 1000 animals. Bottlenose dolphins, the genus tursiops, are the most common and well-known members of the family Delphinidae, the family of oceanic dolphins.

SPOTTED DOLPHIN

 

Spotted Dolphin
The Pantropical spotted dolphin (Stenella attenuata) is a species of dolphin found in all the world’s temperate and tropical oceans. The species was beginning to come under threat due to the killing of millions of individuals in tuna purse seines.
