Fourth, this whale species might be mistaken as Dolphins because of their beak-like features. Indeed, the Beaked Whale is an intriguing creature. Next, the adorable Gray Whale will teach you how to be a master of deception. After the Gray Whale, here’s the Humpback Whale. This whale species is known for its fantastic way of catching its food. Then, let’s get to know the music lover, Orca Whale. This whale has shown a good relationship with the Octonauts. Lastly, the rarest whale would like to meet you! It is called Omura’s whale, and it wants to be your friend!
THE WHALES IN REAL LIFE
The Beluga Whale stands out among its cousins due to its unique white color. But, do you want to know what’s special about this whale? According to the Oceana website, the Beluga whale is the only species from the cetacean family with a flexible neck; it can move its neck up and down and side to side. When we say that the Blue Whale is gigantic, it is true since we have read from the WWF website that this whale species can measure up to 100 feet, and its heart alone is the same size as a Volkswagen Beetle!
Whenever you hear the word “Bowhead Whale,” you will think of its unique appearance. Its massive head is what makes this whale special. According to the Oceanwide Expeditions website, its head takes up one-third of its entire body length! Now, down to the Beaked Whale, we have read from Brittanica that this whale is known for its snout, two throat grooves under its chin, small rounded flippers, and a dorsal fin.
The Gray Whale is one of the largest mammals as it can grow up to 50 feet and weigh 40 tons, as revealed by the Whale Facts website. Usually, the female Gray Whale grows larger than the male ones. Then, the Humpback Whale is mostly gentle and non-aggressive, as per the DiscoverWildlife website.
Now, we’re down to the two interesting whales. Let’s go and meet the Orca Whale, also known as the Killer Whale. Of course, it is not called a “Killer Whale” for nothing. National Geographic stated that the Orca Whale is one of the most powerful predators in the world. Lastly, we have Omura’s Whale. This whale is considered extinct back in 2003 but was deemed alive in 2015, as stated by the Whale and Dolphin Conservation website.
THE WHALES’ SUPERPOWERS
Woohoo! We’re on the most exciting part of the article, getting to know their superpowers. Once again, we’re starting with the Beluga Whale. Have you seen the melon-like shape head of this whale? It is known to be a “bulbous” that enables the Beluga whale to produce sound and make facial expressions. Next, the Blue Whale is deemed the loudest animal on the planet since its calls can reach 188 decibels. That’s even louder than a jet since it can only reach 140 decibels!
Then, the Bowhead Whale boasts its thick and robust skull. Its skull is massive and thick that allows it to break into icebergs that have 60 cm thickness. Next, the Beaked Whale has one or two pairs of functional teeth. It uses these teeth to fight other whales searching for a mate. Well, that explains the numerous scars on a Beaked Whale’s body.
Though the Gray Whale is a large creature, it is the target prey of hungry Orca Whales. In order to avoid them, the Gray Whale hides behind rocks or the Kelp forests. Of course, the Humpback Whale has a unique way of catching its food. This whale hunts with other Humpback Whales to ensure the success of their hunting. They will execute the “bubble netting” method wherein the whales will dive below the fish’s school, spiral back, and blow air bubbles. Then, this will disorient and trap the fish. What a brilliant creature!
Watch out for the last two whales; they’re absolutely remarkable. The Orca Whale is a highly intelligent creature. Once these whales hunt in a group or pod, they are unstoppable. Thus, the Orca Whale is on the top of the food chain. Last but not least, Omura’s Whale is a fabulous singer. It sings in a low repetitive melody that lasts an hour or more. Scientists believe that males commonly perform this behavior to capture their mate’s hearts. Though there is limited information about this whale due to its seldom appearance, let’s hope to find out more about Omura’s Whale in the near future.
Now that we’ve met these whales, we can say that they are brilliant and extraordinary creatures. They don’t just reign in the ocean but on the land as well. Maybe there are more whales to discover, and perhaps that means we have to be better creatures so we can’t lose them.
