Just want to share another thing that interests me
I think you have learned what "kingdom", "class", "order", "family", "phylum" are during Science or Biology class, haven't you?
Cetacea is order.
Whales, dolphins and porpoises are cetaceans. They are mammals, not fish, okay? (lol, acting like a Science teacher
, I think most of you have known about it.)
One of my dreams is to scubadive with these animals, especially bottlenose dolphins
This is a killer whale
or orca trying to munch the penguins. Though it has the size of a whale and its name is 'killer whale', killer whales do not belong to whale family. They belong to dolphin family (delphinidae). Even though killer whale is not the largest cetacean, it is the deadliest cetacean and killer whales eat much larger whales such as humpback whales. Humbpack whales and most of other whales do not have teeth but they have baleen
These are bottlenose dolphins
. And the image below is a humpback whale's tail.
Below are narwhals
. Narwhals are like the unicorns of the ocean Beluga whales
The picture above has once been made as my phone wallpaper
Awwwww the above picture is so cute
A fact about beluga whales: a beluga whale was born grey but its colour fades over time and becomes white when it becomes an adult beluga whale.Pilot whale
. Pilot whales also do not belong to whale family. They belong to dolphin family instead.Blue whale
, the largest mammal and the largest animal in the world.
This is a river dolphin
. Its colour is pink. Unique, isn't it?
This is a porpoise
. Porpoises are a little bit smaller than bottlenose dophins.
These are dusky dolphins
Anyways, none of the above, including blue whales, ever eat humans.
Hope you guys enjoy it
God-willing, I will create post about other marine mammals
