Blue Whale (Balaenoptera Musculus)

They live travel due to the seasons as live in subtropical climates during the winter and summer whereas they live in the poles during the months of spring. They will have their young in areas where they feel that there are no threats nearby such as in shallower waters.

The blue whale is the largest mammal on the planet. It is a baleen whale which means that it does not have teeth, rather long strands made out of the same material that your fingernails are made out of. With this they suck in large amounts of water catching krill in their mouths, this allows them to find as they swim. They also have specialized hearing which allows them to pick up the higher pitches in the water as sound travels differently in water than in the air. Also many of their organs are internal to reduce drag such as their ears.

Blue whales will have one calf per birth. Usually you will see blue whales traveling in pairs. It will take one year for the calf to be born where it will stay with its mother for a long period of time. Whales do not reach sexual maturity until the age of 10. The mother will teach it's calf how to feed, swim and jump out of the water in order to see the world around them.

Blue whales feed on tiny organisms known as krill by method of their baleen plates. Because of their large size they are not threatened by predators. Humans have posed threat through fishing and whaling. Illegal whaling operations hunt whales for meat and their blubber.
