Blue whales can weigh up to 150 tons and are 80 feet long. This means they are bigger than a bus! They have two blowholes on their back and when they blow water it stinks so bad! They also have a dorsal fin. Blue whales have baleen that is black in color. They eat krill and plankton.
Orca whales are 23 feet long and weigh up to 12,000 pounds. Orca whales have their eyes under the white spots on their head. Orca whales have teeth, not baleen. Whales are known to spyhop. Spyhopping is when a whale pokes its head out of the water to see what is going on. I would like to know if Orca whales eat Blue whales. I wonder this because Orca whales have teeth. Some day I hope to see a whale at Sea World.
Learning about whales is so much fun!
