California Gray Whale
A baleen whale can reach up to 52 feet in length and weigh 36 tons, with a life expectancy of up to 70 years. They are so named for the gray patches on their otherwise dark skin and were once called ‘devil fish’ because of their erratic hunting behavior. Over 10,000 gray whales take part in their annual migration.
Giant Blue Whales
Measuring up to 108 feet and up to 180 tons, this is the largest animal ever known to have existed. They were once found in abundance in all the world’s oceans but were hunted almost to extinction. In 2002 it was reported that there were between 5,000 and 12,000 blue whales in the world, traveling in as few as five groups. Newport Landing viewed over 300 blue whales in 2020.
Also known as the Killer Whale, these mammals are toothed whales belonging to the dolphin family. They are regarded as ‘apex predators’ because they themselves have no predators and often feed on even large sharks, using sophisticated hunting techniques and vocal signals.
A sub-order of baleen whales is the second smallest type in existence. They measure in at an average of only 23 feet and weigh around 14 tons. They are black and gray in color, recognizable by the white band on each flipper. These whales typically live between 30 and 50 years.
A species of baleen whale ranging from 39-52 feet and weighing in at an average of 79,000 lbs. The whale is recognizable by its long pectoral fins and bumpy head.
