The Incredible Blue Whale. One Of The Largest Living Beings On This Planet...

When the Blue Whale is born
it can measure up to twenty five feet long and weigh up to three tonnes.
It will gain an incredible two hundred pounds a day in the first year of it's life and it will grow to an amazing one hundred feet long and weigh
up to two hundred tonnes.
The tongue of one of these monsters of the deep can weigh as much as an elephant and their hearts as much as a car.
Their calls can be heard by another whale an staggering one thousand miles away.
There are currently perhaps ten thousand of these wonderful creatures in the Southern Hemisphere and around four thousand in the Northern Hemisphere.
The word awesome might well be used to describe these beautiful living beings...
