Do you know that the biggest animal in the world lives in the sea? Yes, it is a whale. The whale is a mammal but it is almost always mistaken as a fish since it lives in the sea just like other fish and marine creatures.

The whale, like other mammals, has a warm-blooded body and breathes through its lungs. To correct the common misconception, the whale does not breathe through its gills.

From time to time, the whale will swim to the surface of the sea to get fresh air. When it does so, you will notice the warm air is thrown out. This warm air when mixing with the surrounding cold air will produce a spray of mist.

Blue whales are known as the biggest species for whales. Due to their larger size, they do not feed on smaller fishes or other sea creatures. In facts, they feed on plankton. In contrast to that, the killer whales which is also the smallest species of whales, feeds on seals, penguins, fish and even other species of whales.

We need to protect the population of the whales as these magnificent animals are facing the risk of extinction.
