All About Whales

Children's book About WhalesWhales are awesome. They are some of the biggest mammals on the planet and are a wonder to see when we can catch of glimpse of them in their natural habitat.

Even if you have never seen a whale, you should know that they are not a fish. Fish have scales, breathe oxygen through a set of gills and lay eggs for their young to emerge from. Whales, on the other fin, have to surface to breathe, give birth to their young live and have a rubbery feel to their bodies. They are also warm-blooded and move their tails in an up-down motion to propel themselves through the water.

A Cartoon Illustration of a Boy and a Girl Riding on a Killer WhaleThe whale’s body is extremely streamline, regardless of its size or species and are well-adapted to living in the ocean waters. Whales also have very powerful tails and use them for not only swimming, but also for breaching, spyhopping, lobtailing and logging.

Breaching is when a whale jumps out of the water and returns with a huge splash. Spyhopping is when a whale peeks its head up and looks around. Lobtailing involves the whale slamming its tail down on the surface of the water and logging is when the whale is quietly floating just under the surface.

A Beluga Whale Swimming in a Clear Water Under the SeaWhales can be found all over the world, from the chilly waters of the Antarctic all the way down to the tropics. Different types of whales, like the Orca, will migrate from one ocean to the next. They do this to return back to their birthing waters where they will find a mate and have their own calves. The Humpback whale begins its trip from the colder polar regions to the warm tropical waters. During this time it hardly eats and focuses on getting from one area to the next. Killer whales (orcas) pretty much never stop eating and will always move to where the food is plentiful.

A Side View of the Humpback Whale Swimming in the Ocean Since whales spend all of their time in the water they have developed a haunting sense of communication. Whale songs are “music” this mammal uses to let others know where it is or to alert others of intruders. Once again the humpback whale is used as an example. Its beautiful song (and the whale) has been referred to as the, “composers of the sea” – this is because its voice is very similar to human music. Humpbacks may use this music to lure females into thinking he is the most physically fit of all her suitors.

The whale truly is one of the most fascinating beings on our planet. Some are gigantic in size, yet they seem to possess a gentle nature about them. If you ever have a chance to see them in their natural habitat you will be astounded at just how large these mammals really are. Check them out, as it could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

    By wisely managing our resources now, it’s possible for more whale and dolphin species, like the gray whale, to make phenomenal recoveries.

    In my own opinion, whales are really gentle when they are just swimming around. Basically, I am truly amazed that whales can hum different tones depending on what they are trying to say. By reading this book, kids will also love the fact that whales are cute even they are huge.
