By Tony Corey
They are the largest animals on the planet. They are mammals but they are completely aquatic, feeding, mating, calving, and suckling their young in the water. They are thousands of years old and ubiquitous throughout the world, but they remain elusive and mysterious. Whales are among the oldest, most diverse group of marine mammals, dating back 40 to 50 million years, according to fossil evidence. They share with dolphins and porpoises the taxonomic order cetacea. Within this order, they fall into two suborders, according to their feeding habits: mysticeti and odontoceti. Mysticetes are baleen whales, which feed by filtering animal plankton and small schooling fish from the water through bristlelike baleen plates growing from the upper jaw. Odontocetes are toothed whales, whose conical teeth grasp prey consisting primarily of squid and fish. Defined in large part by their size, whales exhibit considerable variation among species. The blue whale, the largest animal ever to exist, can grow to 90 ft (27 m) and 125 tons. At the other end of the range, the dwarf sperm whale may be only 7 to 9 ft (2.5 m) and just over 600 pounds (280 kg).

What is a Whale?
Whales are large, intelligent, aquatic mammals . They breathe air through blowhole(s) into lungs (unlike fish who breathe using gills). Whales have sleek, streamlined bodies that move easily through the water. They are the only mammals, other than manatees (seacows), that live their entire lives in the water, and the only mammals that have adapted to life in the open oceans. Whales breathe air. They are NOT fish. They are mammals that spend their entire lives in the water.

A general introduction.
Home The Faroe Islands The pilot whale drive National whaling regulations ... Contacts and links
Many different species of whales and dolphins occur in the waters around the Faroe Islands. Of these, a number of small toothed whales, mainly pilot whales, are taken in the Faroe Islands for their meat and blubber. The characteristically Faroese form of whaling, known in Faroese as grind , was once common around the North Atlantic. Organised on the local community level and regulated by national legislation, the Faroese whale drive has over the years successfully adapted to modern standards of resource management and animal welfare. For the Faroe Islands - an island nation overwhelmingly dependent on what the sea can provide - the conservation and management of all living marine resources, including marine mammals is of vital importance.

Whales of today
Toothed whales are in general much smaller than the Baleen whales. They are also characterized by having only a single blowhole. They feed on fish and squid. Famous Toothed whales are, the Dolphin, the Killerwhale (also known as the Orca) and the Spermwhale.
Food resources
The Krill is a shrimp and it can be seven centimetres long. There are 750 billions of tons of Krill around the Antarctic. They exist only in the Antarctic, on the northern side there are other kinds of shrimps. The other big food resource is the squid and octopus. They live deep beneath the surface, usually 500-1000 metres below, unlike the surface living Krill. Only whales that dive deep can catch them. The most famous squideater is the Spermwhale. It likes the Architeuhis, a 20 metre big squid. The Spermwhale can dive to this depth because of what they have in their heads. Also Bottlenose dolphins can dive deep, they have a forehead which is similiar to the Spermwhale. Fish is the third biggest resource of food. Whales eat mostly Herring and Caplin. It is also these species that humans have catched and therefore made it difficult for whales and other animals living on Herring and Caplin. Especially Barents Sea in the north was a golden resource for fishermen. In the mid-eighties the fishing production came to a halt. There were almost no more fish, especially not Caplin. The fish-eating whales were affected by this just as much as the hunting. The Graywhale doesn't eat anything of the above. It eats animals living on the bottom of the sea. While it doesn't dive deep, it lives near the coastline where it isn't deep and because of this, it is one of the most exposed whales, and unfortunately one of the most hunted too.

Whales - Cetaceans The whale is the largest and most majestic animal to ever inhabit our planet. Originally a land dwelling four-legged creature that returned to the waters we all evolved from millions of years ago, they now populate the earth’s oceans. The oceans once teemed with these wonderful mammals that, like us, breath oxygen, give birth to live offspring and have a complex family- and social structure. But their numbers were decimated by humans for profit and many whale species were driven to the brink of extinction and are still in grave danger of vanishing forever. Despite an overwhelming majority vote amongst the Earth's population to protect the whales , there are still some nations that kill them for money. Help stop this senseless killing. Learn and educate yourself with facts about whales and begin to understand this majestic animal and how it shares the world we reside in.
Whales are particularly intelligent mammals and like humans, place much value on their families and the role that each member plays within the unit. Notably, the individual families also travel and migrate together in pods and each family member continues to play a vital role within that pod, as a greater unit of the family. These groups demonstrate the sociable

Like all mammals, the gray whale is warm blooded, breathes air and nurses its young. Moderately large in size, they range in length from 40 to 50 feet and can weigh up to 73,000 pounds, with males smaller than females. Gray in color, hence the name, they are classified as Cetacea, marine mammals that include whales, porpoises and dolphins and belong to Mysticeti, one of the three families of great baleen whales. Grays have no close relatives; they are the single species of the family Eschrichtidae.
If you want to see mothers and their calves first hand, whale-watching trips to Magdalena Bay (the closest calving area to Los Cabos) are best made with daytrip fly-in tours. Aereo Calafia offers tours during the whale watching season. This is a completely different experience than whale watching off the coast of Los Cabos as you are in a protected area of extremely calm, shallow water. Here you will be able to interact with the whales and get much closer to them than in the open ocean. The opportunity to pet whales is not uncommon. If you have more time to spend a few days in Magdalena Bay, there are several tour companies that operate from Loreto as a base camp.
You will find that there are several local, top notch-whale watching tours that will bring you as close as possible to the grays and other whales off the coast of Los Cabos and they generally conduct daily excursions from January to March.

Killer whales are found in all oceans, from the frigid Arctic and Antarctic regions to tropical seas. Killer whales as a species have a diverse diet, although individual populations often specialize in particular types of prey. Some feed exclusively on fish, while others hunt marine mammals such as sea lions seals walruses and even large whales . Killer whales are regarded as apex predators , lacking natural predators and preying on even large sharks.

Killer whale sounds to scare seals 'attracted whales to fish farm'
Sounds of killer whales played to scare seals away from a fish farm instead attracted a pod of whales into a loch off the Outer Hebrides, it is thought.
The pod of whales have appeared in Loch Carnan Photo: MACIVER NEWS By Daily Telegraph Reporter 5:51PM BST 28 Oct 2010 Comments Coastguards, conservationists and divers raced to the loch ready to mount a rescue operation on Thursday over fears of a mass stranding of the 24 pilot whales in South Uist. Stornoway Coastguard said that a fish farm in the loch had been using the recorded sounds of a killer whale to scare away seals. There were also reports that the pod had come into the sea loch to allow one of the group to calve. Related Articles "The seal scarer may have attracted the pod in. The fish farm has now turned off the recording," said a spokesman for Stornoway Coastguard.

The Blue Whale is the largest animal ever to have lived on earth, at up to 100 tons, easily out-weighing the heaviest dinosaurs, even an "ordinary " sized whale is a vast and impressive creature. Whales are huge, but elusive and difficult to see which adds to their mystery and fascination. They are highly intelligent animals with an elaborate social life, no possessions and the complete freedom of movement in three dimensions. Is it any wonder that they are such popular and fascinating animals? - maybe we just want to be like them! Whales belong to the group of mammals called Cetaceans , they are a part of this group along with dolphins and porpoises. Whales are mammals as are humans, dogs, cats, elephants and anguantibos amongst others. This means that they are not fish.

Whales Whales, dolphins, and porpoises all belong to the same taxonomic order called cetaceans. Cetaceans are comprised of about 80 kinds of whales, dolphins, and porpoises. The word cetacean is derived from the Latin "cetus" (a large sea animal) and the Greek "ketos" (sea monster). They are mammals which means they are warm-blooded, they have at least a few hairs on their bodies, and they nourish their young with milk. Cetaceans spend their whole lives in water and some live in family groups called "pods. "There are about 80 species of whales, dolphins, and porpoises populate the world's oceans. To study these cetaceans we categorize the species into two main groups: baleen whales (or, mysticetes) and toothed whales (or, odontocetes).
