The blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) is a marine mammal belonging to the suborder of baleen whales (called Mysticeti). At 30 metres (98 ft) in length and 170 tonnes (190 short tons) or more in weight, it is the largest known animal to have ever existed. Let us learn about about this mighty mysterious creature
My family and I were tossing around some silly questions at breakfast the other day. There was one question that stuck in my head ever since and the internet has not been very helpful to answer it.
So is anybody out there, who could tell us what's the average amount of amniotic fluid at the time of a bluewhale birth is?
How long do you think could a blue whale live if they didn't get too old to swim to the surface? Also I apologize if that's not actually true but its what vie heard.
All help is appreciated!
Art plan here, for anyone coming from a crosspost.
Set to the tune of Auferstanden Aus Ruinen. This is not meant to be an endorsement (or condemnation) of East Germany, I just thought a song about rebuilding after a catastrophe and creating a brighter future was very fitting.
Rising up out of the ruins, largest animals to live, Confidence in all our doings, to the future we shall give.
We will rule over the oceans, whaling ships we all shall sink, disavowing any notions that we'll ever go extinct, for Blue Whales live, for Blue Whales live!
Unrivaled in grace and power, gentle giants of the sea, beautiful at every hour, must be seen to be believed.
Against our mighty thrashing tails, no enemy can long last, Megalodon we have conquered, Murder Whales we shall bash, so no mother will, have to mourn her calf!
Over every trench and coral, our great kingdom does expand, and the day is nigh before us when we'll also conquer land.
Humankind will bow before us, when we rid the world of strife, every creature will adore us, when we usher in new life, with Blue Whale's might, with Blue Whale's might!
