FC: GRAY WHALE BY: ZAKIYAH
1: Gray Whales go deep down in the ocean and stay on the bottom for long periods of times.
2: The adult Gray Whale weighs 30 to 40 tons. It eats small crustaceans and krill.
3: A mother gray whale usually has a baby “tail first” in January. The baby is 16 feet long and weighs about one ton.
4: Hunting and killing whales is called whaling. This almost caused whales to become extinct. Now they are protected.
5: Today there are over 25,000 Gray Whales living in the Pacific Ocean. They migrate from the Arctic all the way to northern Mexico in the winter.
6: What I about the gray whale project was working on the Mixbooks. The research took a lot of time and energy. I also liked looking for the pictures but really wanted some that showed gray whales jumping out of the water.
