      I got Whale! Which Marine Mammal Are You?You are a whale! You are loved by all, but you can be aggressive at times because of your loyal nature. You don’t let anyone stand in your way. You are wise and can relate to other people’s problems. I love this because Hunchback whales are my favorite sea animal. Let's sing with the whales!

      Tell EPA to protect the Pacific from fracking | Oil companies are fracking in sensitive areas where blue and humpback whales congregate and are dumping their toxic wastewater into the ocean. Since they’re in federal waters, we need the EPA and Department of the Interior to step in and protect the Pacific from further damage from fracking. Please SIGN and share this action. Thanks.

      Stop offshore fracking EPA Fracking Whale 2.o Oil companies are fracking in sensitive areas where blue and humpback whales congregate and are dumping their toxic wastewater into the ocean. The California Senate is considering a bill to stop all fracking statewide. Please urge your Senator to support SB 1132.

      Dana Point California: Humpback Whale watching. Unfortunately, we never got this close but this is an awesome picture.

      WHALE WATCHING - Gloucester is situated directly between two major whale feeding grounds: Stellwagen Bank and Jeffreys Ledge. Both of these areas are home to numerous species of whales, dolphins, sharks, and other marine wildlife. Jeffreys Ledge and Stellwagen Bank make up Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, one of the world's top 10 whale watching locations. Enjoy the very best whale watching in all of New England! #GlouceserMA #WhaleWatching #whales

      As it turns out, whales are capable of trading fishing secrets. In 1980, it was first observed that a humpback whale was using a new technique of fishing, slapping its tail onto the surface of the ocean. Over years, this behavior spread, and is now standard practice in that region. Computer programming has shown that it's highly unlikely this skill could have been learned independently, and is changing how scientists regard learned behavior in the animal kingdom.

      I have to whale watch someday. One of the things on my bucket list!

      Humpback whale breaching. Scrotifera is a proposed clade of mammals within Laurasiatheria, consisting of the following six orders and their common ancestors: Artiodactyla, Even-toed ungulate, Carnivora, Cetacea, Chiroptera, Bat Perissodactyla, Odd-toed ungulate, Pholidota, Pangolin, It is based on evidence from molecular phylogenetics. The name comes from the word scrotum, a pouch in which the testes permanently reside in the adult male. All members of the group have a postpenile scrotum, often prominently displayed, except for some aquatic forms and pangolin (which has the testes just below the skin). It appears to be an ancestral character for this group, yet other orders generally lack this as an ancestral feature, with the probable exception of Primates. The infraorder Cetacea /sɨˈteɪʃⁱə/ includes the marine mammals commonly known as whales, dolphins, and porpoises. Cetus is Latin and is used in biological names to mean 'whale'. Its original meaning, 'large sea animal', was more general. It comes from Ancient Greek κῆτος (kētos), used for whales and other huge fish or sea monsters. Cetology is the branch of marine science associated with the study of cetaceans. An ancient ancestor of the whale, Basilosaurus was thought to be a reptile until vestigial parts were recognized. Traditionally Cetacea was treated as an order, but it has become increasingly aware based on physiological data that cetaceans are not only a clade of even-toed ungulates, but that Cetacea might be recognized as an infraorder. Fossil evidence suggests that the cetaceans share a common ancestor with hippopotamuses that began living in marine environments around 50 million years ago. Today, they are the mammals best adapted to aquatic life. The body of a cetacean is fusiform (spindle-shaped). The forelimbs are modified into flippers. The tiny hindlimbs are vestigial; they do not attach to the backbone and are hidden within the body. The tail has horizontal flukes. Cetaceans are nearly hairless, and are insulated from the cooler water they inhabit by a thick layer of blubber. Some species are attributed with high levels of intelligence. At the 2012 meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, support was reiterated for a cetacean bill of rights, listing cetaceans as non-human persons. The collective noun "pod" is often used for a herd or school of marine mammals, especially a small herd or family group of whales or dolphins.
