This summer while I was in Alaska, a poster featuring the whales of the world mysteriously appeared in the Bear Den (our mess hall). Being the sensory deprived fishermen we were, a game developed. Rules were simple, and unclear: we'd reach a consensus about who got to pick the whale of the day. That person, then picks the whale of the day and reads the facts about that whale. Brilliant, I know.
Well, I recently came across a couple great whale facts, so I christen this my first whale facts post. Enjoy.
A blue whale's heart is the size of a small car, and a human could fit through the major arteries connecting to the heart.
Enough said. Thanks blue whale.
