A Whale In Antarctica Pictured On An Acrylic Fridge Magnet
The awesome power of a whale in Antarctica is perfectly captured on this acrylic fridge magnet from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts. Whales are mammals just like humans; they are warm blooded and give birth to live young that feed on their mother's milk and stay with her until they are approximately a year old. Whales are intelligent creatures and their slightly elusive nature just adds to the air of mystery and wonder about them. What is certain about the creatures is that they fall into two groups, toothed whales and baleen whales. The names mean what they imply with toothed whales actually having teeth while baleen whales have fibrous plates of baleen in their mouths instead.
The Whales In Antarctica
There are several species of whale that can be found in Antarctica, the largest of which is the blue whale. This creature is the largest to have ever lived on the planet and can weigh in excess of one hundred and seventy tonnes. Blue whales are part of the baleen group and their diet mostly consists of krill; an adult blue whale can eat up to forty million krill a day. Humpback whales can also be found in Antarctic waters. They also belong to the baleen group and feed on krill or fish such as herring and salmon. Humpback whales are very popular with people on whale watching tours as they are known to often breach the surface of the water and hit the water with their tales. They no doubt make for a similar sight to the whale in Antarctica that is pictured on our attractive acrylic fridge magnet.
