Whales are the larges animals on earth. Bigger than elephants they may grow 95 feet long and weight 150 tons. A baby blue whale just born can be 23 feet long and weigh 3 tons.
Although whales live in the oceans and swim like a fish, they are not fish. They are mammals, like cows and elephants. Unlike fish they bear young alive, not as eggs. Their babies live on theirs mother’s mouth. They breathe through their lungs and hold their breath when they go under water. If they cannot come to the surface to breathe fresh air, they will down. They are warm-blooded fish, lay eggs, breathe oxygen in the water and are cold-blooded.
Whales live in all oceans. In the winter some of them go to warm waters to breed and in the summer most of them go to cold waters to feed. There are two kinds of whales, whales with teeth (toothed whales) and whales without teeth (baleen whales). The toothed whales eat fish and squid, which they can catch with their teeth, although they swallow their food without chewing it. The baleen whales eat plankton (small sea animals and plants). When they find plankton, they open their mouths and swim into the plankton. When they close their mouths they squeeze out the water and swallow the plankton.
Whales have few enemies. Only human and the killer whales attack whales. And whales do not seem to fight among themselves. They usually live from 20 to 30 years.

“Remember last year when I was broke, and you help me out, and I said I’d never forget you?”
“Well, I’m broke again.”
A STRANGE MESSAGE
One night in 1828, the captain of a ship crossing the Atlantic Ocean was in the cabin, when suddenly a man stepped into the room. The captain had never seen the man before. The man said nothing, but he wrote a message on the wall of the cabin and then disappeared. The message said, “Turn the ship around and sail to the north-west.” The captain was surprised but decided to follow the stranger’s instructions. A few hours later, he saw a small ship ahead that was sinking. The captain asked his crew to see what happened. They only found one person on board the ship. It was the same man the captain had seen in the cabin. The man explained he had just awakened from a deep sleep. In his sleep, he dreamed that he was going to be rescued.
