Beached whales often die due to dehydration, collapsing under their own weight, or when water covers their blowhole. Beaching still remains largely a mystery! credits to Karim Iliya for the amazing pic! #whale #whalesounds #whalesoundzzz #fun #fact #didyouknow #beach #beachedwhale #beachbabe #dehydration #water #weight #weightwatchers #blow #hole #mystery #sea #ocean #animal #seaanimals #nature #wildlife #wildaboutwhales #photography #whalepostoftheday #sperm #followus #pleasefollowus
All mammals have two nostrils, the equivalent of a whale's blowholes. In toothed whales, one nostril evolved into their echolocation system.

Did you know? Whales use large rocks to rub dead skin off their bodies, as exfoliation! Just like pumice stones, to get rid of calluses and dead skin. #whale #whales #sounds #whalesounds #whalesoundzzz #fun #fact #funfact #didyouknow #exfoliate #skin #dead #pumice #callus #rocks #deadskin #sea #water #ocean #animal #seaanimal #nature #wildlife #wildaboutwhales #photography #whalepostoftheday #sperm #followus #pleasefollowus #humpbackwhale
The study of whale sounds has shed light on the social complexity hypothesis of whale communities -- it is possible that whale social structures are very complex like humans! #whale #whales #sounds #whalesounds #whalesoundzzz #fun #fact #funfact #didyouknow #speak #language #society #complex #communication #water #sea #ocean #animal #seaanimal #nature #wildlife #wildaboutwhales #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #whalepostoftheday #sperm #followus #pleasefollowus #humpbackwhale #whalewatching
Despite being so large, most whales are secondary consumers! Comparatively, species of big cats, predatory birds, and even just large snakes are tertiary. #whale #whales #sounds #whalesounds #whalesoundzzz #fun #fact #funfact #didyouknow #secondary #food #eat #foodchain #foodweb #tertiary #water #sea #ocean #animal #seaanimal #nature #wildlife #wildaboutwhales #whalepostoftheday #sperm #photography #followus #pleasefollowus #humpbackwhale #whalewatching
Did you know? Narwhals change color as they age. Newborns are a blue-gray, juveniles are blue-black and adults are a mottled gray. Old narwhals are nearly all white.

The latest research suggests that sperm whales' extended families are just as important to them as our own. The whales' social lives are crucial to their success.

Not to get all ~sciencey~ but "Cetacea" is the Latin name for whale and Cetacea (the family for whales) consists of two suborders, Mysticeti and Odontoceti #whale #whales #sounds #whalesounds #whalesoundzzz #fun #fact #funfact #didyouknow #cetacea #latin #family #suborder #water #sea #ocean #animal #seaanimal #seaanimals #nature #wildlife #wildaboutwhales #photography #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #whalepostoftheday #sperm #followus #pleasefollowus
In general, toothed whales are more social than their non-toothed (baleen) counterparts and are more likely to defend each other during an attack. photo credits to Don Baccus! #whale #whales #sounds #whalesounds #whalesoundzzz #fun #fact #funfact #didyouknow #baleen #tooth #toothed #teeth #social #attack #water #sea #ocean #animal #seaanimals #nature #wildlife #wildaboutwhales #whalepostoftheday #sperm #followus #pleasefollowus
Many whale species and populations migrate, but some, like the humpback whale, don't migrate at all! #whale #whales #sounds #whalesounds #whalesoundzzz #humpbackwhale #whalewatching #delfines #orcas #orca #blackfish #emptythetanks #whale #whales #whaleshark #whalesharks
There are 200 to 430 grams of fat per liter in whale's milk, in comparison to the 40g/L in cow's milk! Wow! #whale #whales #sounds #whalesounds #whalesoundzzz #humpbackwhale #whalewatching #delfines #orcas #orca #blackfish #emptythetanks #whale #whales #whaleshark #whalesharks
Scientists believe that blue whales evolved to the size they are now 4.5 million years ago! #whale #whales #sounds #whalesounds #whalesoundzzz #humpbackwhale #whalewatching #delfines #orcas #orca #blackfish #emptythetanks #whale #whales #whaleshark #whalesharks
Did you know? Some bowhead whales have been found with the tips of ivory spears still lodged in their flesh from failed attempts by whalers 200 years ago!!! #whale #whales #sounds #whalesounds #whalesoundzzz #humpbackwhale #whalewatching #delfines #orcas #orca #blackfish #emptythetanks #whale #whales #whaleshark #whalesharks
Other names for narwhals have been "unicorn of the sea", "sea monster which has a very large horn", and "one-horned fish" (although narwhals are not fish!).

Scientists are now working on mapping out the migration patterns of whales to decrease ship strikings. Knowing where whales are during the year will help ships avoid whales, keeping them safe! #whale #whales #sounds #whalesounds #whalesoundzzz #humpbackwhale #whalewatching #delfines #orcas #orca #blackfish #emptythetanks #whale #whales #whaleshark #whalesharks
Did you know? Gray whales undertake the longest known migration of any mammal! Credits to the NOYO center for the fact! #whale #whales #sounds #whalesounds #whalesoundzzz #humpbackwhale #whalewatching #delfines #orcas #orca #blackfish #emptythetanks #whale #whales #whaleshark #whalesharks
