There is such a wide variety of whales that it’s amazing to see these large creatures actually live in our oceans. The blue whale, the largest whale of all, can grow to over 30m. There are whales that like to live in the cold Arctic like the narwhal or beluga whales.
There are whales of different sizes, those that are toothed or baleen whales. Baleen whales take large gulps of water and filter the water through their baleen, a bristle-like structure, that traps small fish and krill.
Did you know the killer whale isn’t a whale? It’s a dolphin, they like to live in social groups called pods. And help each other to hunt prey.
Whales may eat things as small as krill to other whales, they are carnivores.
