Whales! Learn About Whales and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn!

Whales! Learn About Whales and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn! (50+ Photos of Whales) - Becky Wolff

It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve done one of these but in reality I think it’s only been a week or so.

 

4 Stars, borrow

 

This one was really strong on facts. The pictures weren’t too bad and there wasn’t any horrible dead animal photos. Overall a good one in the series.



Did you know?

Baleen whales, are whales without teeth

Humpback whales have a unique pattern on his or her tail making it easy to tell them apart.

Humpback whales only eat during the summer (Really? Did not know this!)

Pilot whales and killer whales may have the word whale in their name but for classification purposes are actually considered dolphins (huh, who knew?)

Sperm whales have the largest brain on the planet

Whales live between 40-200 years (typo? If not then this is kinda a huge range)

A female blue whale can produce over 90 gallons of milk each day (!!!!)

The Beluga whale is able to swim backwards

There are estimated to be less than 400 belugas in the wild :-(
