Blue Whale, and Beluga Whale Adaptations
Blue Whale Adaptations
- The blue whale has evolved to survive in its surroundings since they live in the poles (were the water is colder) they have more fat under their skin so they won’t freeze to death in the cold water.
- The blue whale has adapted to not sleep because if it sleeps, it will drown so it takes short naps instead.
- Since the blue whale is such a big mammal, the flukes on its tail are large so it allows the whale to swim at 30 miles per hour to escape dangerous situations.
Beluga Whale Adaptations
- The Beluga whale has blubber under its skin to stay insulated and warm in the icey, cold water.
- The Beluga whales migrate and hunt together to protect each other in case of danger. And socialize to communicate if there is danger or food nearby. The Beluga whale migrates according to the seasons so it doesn't freeze in the cold water during the winter. For example, in the winter the Beluga stays in open sea because it is warmer there in the winter and in the summer goes near the coast so it doesn't freeze or boil to death.
- When they dive, the Beluga has the ability conserve its oxygen.
