IUCN Status : Endangered (population increasing)
Going big today (literally) with the blue whale! I know so many people will know about blue whales and the facts about them already but did you know these weird whale facts?
• Whales earwax deposits in rings and scientists can use this to determine the age of the whale (like reading the rings on a tree) and can also find out what ocean contaminants that whale was subjected to!
• blue whales are the one of the loudest animals on earth with their clicks registering at around 188 decibels (a sperm whale is louder at 230 decibels!)
Tell me your favourite blue whale fact in the comments!
