A gray whale spout or blow can reach up to 15 feet, and resembles a heart shape from the front or behind. The natural color of the gray whale is dark gray. Often the skin is discolored from barnacle scars left on the skin. While they are in the Northern waters, the gray whales feed mostly on tiny, shrimp-like amphipods.
''Ah the world, oh the whale!" Like Herman Melville's "Moby Dick," "The Whale," Philip Hoare's strange and wonderful new book, is an anatomy - an exploded encyclopedia of all things cetacean. The Mysticeti whales have a baleen instead of teeth. The male gray whale can reach 45 feet, while the female’s can reach 50 feet and weigh 30 or 35 tons. The largest gray whales have flukes, (tails) that can span ten feet. While they are in the Northern waters, the gray whales feed mostly on tiny shrimp like amphipods.
It has also been called “the most important fish in the sea,” by H. Bruce Franklin, the author of a book by the same name. Virtually all predators in the sea, except humans, eat menhaden directly. The whales of New York City feed directly on these fish and are the reason for the comeback of marine mammals to our area. Fin whales arch their backs as they go into a dive but usually don’t show their flukes. Fin whales, like other mysticetes, are solitary animals, but can be seen feeding in groups of when food is abundant. The one and only stable association in fin whales are between a mother and her calf, which last for approximately months.

He says that 40 million to 50 million years ago, they had four legs and lived at least part of their lives on land.
Her feed function is at a mere % (which means it's really, really bad). We would probably call this a coma. In the last scene, Titus sits by her bedside, telling her the story of herself.
(Remember: as Violet's feed started to malfunction more and more toward the end of the book, she was most afraid of forgetting who she was.). Feed Summary. Titus lives in a near-future version of America, where science has advanced far enough to allow touristy space travel and about 70% of the population has what is called "the feed," an advanced form of the Internet combined with every social networking site you can possibly imagine—all implanted directly into people's heads.
Whales are fish because they live in the ocean. Humpback whales live in Hawaiian waters all year long. Pec slapping may be a way that whales communicate. Humpback whales come to Hawai‘i to feed. The flukes of every humpback look the same.

Sperm whales are, as would be expected, looked at in more detail/5(64). Ellis' book on sharks is probably better known than this book on whales, but both are great. The cornerstone of the book are his numerous paintings of a variety of whales.
Ellis also puts forth a good effort in describing what is know about this group of marine mammals. He addresses aspects of the biology, ecology, and behavior of by: Baleen whales and toothed whales feed very differently. While tooth whales are grabbers and suckers, baleen whales are either skimmers, suckers or gulpers.
Toothed whales (including dolphins and porpoises) all have teeth but the number, size and position, and even purpose of their teeth, varies from species to species.
The whale is able to take in a huge mouthful of water and then squeeze its mouth shut and squeeze out the water while straining out the food. Baleen whales feed on tiny creatures called krill and need lots of these to fuel their bodies.
Baleen whales are generally huge; the largest is the biggest creature to have ever lived on Earth- the blue whales are aptly nick-named the ‘great whales’ yet they survive on the teeniest (and most abundant) animals in the ocean; they are filter feeding specialists and target shoals of small fish or clouds of zooplankton and krill in the sea.

Baleen vs Toothed Whales. There are around 80 different species of whales, dolphins and porpoises, and they can be divided into two groups; baleen and toothed.

Whales in captivity are susceptible to tooth infections because they damage their teeth on concrete surfaces, and infection from injuries caused by other whales crammed into tanks with them. Antibiotics, in turn, can make cetaceans (whales, porpoises and dolphins) prone to fungal infections, so the trainers also injected the fish they ate with Author: Melissa Cronin.
There is evidence that sperm whales feed on milk orally rather than through suckling. The milk is released into the water, and the baby sperm whale feeds on the milk directly from the water.
Sperm whales have mouths that may not be conveniently shaped to support suckling. Bubble-net feeding is a cooperative feeding method used by groups of humpback whales. This behavior is not instinctual, it is learned.
Not every population of humpbacks know how to bubble net feed, according to some studies. After observing different populations it is apparent which whales know how to create a bubble net and which do not.
