Whales are the largest mammals on the earth, which are present in every ocean of the world except the arctic and usually swim in small groups or alone. They can weigh up to 150,000 kg, depending on the species and type of whale they belong to. There are two different varieties of whales, toothed and baleen. Toothed whales utilize their sharp teeth to kill their prey, such as dolphins, porpoises, and orcas. On the other hand, Baleen whales hunt down their food (krills) through fringed plates of long, nail-like texture called baleen connected to their upper jaws. Whales are warm-blooded animals. They can breathe air but like to remain in the ocean due to its buoyancy which supports their heavy bulk. Did you know? Some whales feed through bubble nets. It involves blowing water bubbles, which encircle their prey. As prey cannot escape from the bubble, it becomes easy for the whales to eat them.
