Whales and their adaptations

Whales and Their Adaptations

By: Arielle


Introduction

introduction

  • Do you want to know about whales and all of their adaptations? Well I know all about whales. So sit back and enjoy as I show you a presentation about whales and their adaptations.


Birth

Birth

  • First of all, from the time it is born the baby whale can swim. The mom strokes the baby whale with her flipper. The mother whale never leaves her baby unattended. The blue whale baby drinks about 132 gallons of milk a day. And gains about 200 pounds a day. This is a behavioral adaptation because they choose to drink the milk.


Migration

Migration

Most importantly migration. During the winter mother whales never eat. During the spring, thousands of humpbacks head for the colder waters. The whales swim in small groups called pods. A whale can get caught in nets dragged by fishing boats. Migration is a behavioral adaptation. Because they choose to migrate. And go to the warmer waters.


Summer time

Summer time

  • Now it is time for the summer! Humpback whales don’t have teeth. Instead, they have baleen, or flat bony plates. A whales moth can hold tons of food. All summer, as the mother whale eats and her baby whale drinks milk, they build up layers of fat. They play together and they slap the water with their tails. Their baleen is a physical adaptation. Because it is part of their body.


Grown up whale

Grown up whale

  • Now it is time to learn about the adult whale. In the fall, the whales travel back south to the warmer waters. The young humpback whale has grown strong. It can now find its own food. It had now doubled its birth size. The adult male measures 40-48 feet. The adult female measures 45-50 feet. This is a behavioral adaptation because traveling is something you do.


Conclusion
