A genus of WHALES in the family Balaenopteridae, consisting of five species: Blue Whale, Bryde's Whale, FIN WHALE, Sei Whale, and MINKE WHALE. They are distinguished by a relatively slender body, a compressed tail stock, and a pointed snout.
The species Balaenoptera acutorostrata, in the family Balaenopteridae. It is the smallest of the WHALES in the family and though mainly oceanic, is often found in coastal waters including bays and estuaries.
Large marine mammals of the order CETACEA. In the past, they were commercially valued for whale oil, for their flesh as human food and in ANIMAL FEED and FERTILIZERS, and for baleen. Today, there is a moratorium on most commercial whaling, as all species are either listed as endangered or threatened.
The species Balaenoptera physalus, in the family Balaenopteridae, characterized by a large, strongly curved, dorsal fin. It is the second largest of the WHALES, highly migratory, but rarely seen near the shore.
An order of wholly aquatic MAMMALS occurring in all the OCEANS and adjoining seas of the world, as well as in certain river systems. They feed generally on FISHES, cephalopods, and crustaceans. Most are gregarious and most have a relatively long period of parental care and maturation. Included are DOLPHINS; PORPOISES; and WHALES. (From Walker's Mammals of the World, 5th ed, pp969-70)
An area of water mostly surrounded by land, usually smaller than a gulf, and affording access to the sea.

Discovery of a low frequency sound source in Mysticeti (baleen whales): anatomical establishment of a vocal fold homolog. (1/16)

The mechanism of mysticete (baleen whale) vocalization has remained a mystery. Vocal folds (true vocal "cords"), the structures responsible for sound production in terrestrial mammals, were thought to be absent in whales. This study tests the hypothesis that the mysticete larynx possesses structures homologous to vocal folds and that they are capable of sound generation. Laryngeal anatomy was examined in 37 specimens representing 6 mysticete species. Results indicate the presence of a U-shaped fold (U-fold) in the lumen of the larynx. The U-fold is supported by arytenoid cartilages, controlled by skeletal muscles innervated by the recurrent laryngeal nerve, is adjacent to a diverticulum (laryngeal sac) covered with mucosa innervated by the superior laryngeal nerve, and contains a ligament-conditions that also define the vocal folds of terrestrial mammals and, therefore, supports homology. Unlike the vocal folds of terrestrial mammals, which are perpendicular to airflow, the mysticete U-fold is oriented parallel to airflow. U-fold adduction/abduction and elevation/depression may control airflow, and vibration of its edges may generate sounds. The walls of the laryngeal sac can expand and contract, may serve as a resonant space, and may also propagate vibrations generated by movements of the supporting arytenoid cartilages. The extensive musculature surrounding the laryngeal sac may enable rapid and forceful expulsion of air from the lumen of the sac into other respiratory spaces, or maintain a constant sac volume despite the effects of ambient pressure (e.g., changes during diving or ascent). The size and complexity of the mysticete larynx indicates an organ with multiple functions, including protection during breathing/swallowing, regulation of airflow and pressures in the respiratory spaces, and sound generation. The presence of a vocal fold homolog offers a new insight into both the mechanism of sound generation by mysticetes and the divergent evolution of odontocete and mysticete cetaceans.  (+info)

Effects of semen extenders and storage temperatures on characteristics of frozen-thawed Bryde's (Balaenoptera edeni) whale spermatozoa. (2/16)

The present study investigated effects of three semen extenders and storage temperatures on post-thaw characteristics of Bryde's whale spermatozoa. Spermatozoa were collected from the vasa deferens of three mature Bryde's whales captured during the Japanese whale research in the north-west Pacific (May to August 2007) after death. The three semen extenders used for freezing were 1) a commercialized synthetic extender (AndroMed: AM), 2) Tris-based + 10% bovine serum albumin (BSA) and 3) Tris-based + egg yolk (EY). The sperm samples from the three whales were frozen with the three extenders, and the post-thaw spermatozoa were stored at three different temperatures (35 C; 20-25 C, room temperature; and 5 C) for 0, 6, 12, 24, 48 and 96 h. At each time-point, total and progressive motility (PM), viability (live or dead), the hypo-osmotic test, defective acrosomes and malformation were examined. Immediately after thawing, AM resulted in similar recovery rates (60.4 and 83.3%) in 2 of the 3 whales examined and had comparable post-thaw recovery rates to those obtained using the EY and BSA extenders. Immediately after thawing, the proportion of PM in EY (17.6%) was higher (P<0.05) than that in BSA (15.0%). In the hypo-osmotic test, the proportions of AM (26.0%) and BSA (25.2%) were higher (P<0.05) than that of EY (17.3 %). The three extenders had similar viabilities (36.7, 37.9 and 32.1%, respectively), but the viability of BSA was higher (P<0.05) than that of EY. The present study showed that a synthetic semen extender, AndroMed, could be used for cryopreservation of whale spermatozoa in addition to Tris-based extenders containing bovine serum albumin or egg yolk. Storage of the post-thaw Bryde's whale spermatozoa was better at 5 C than at room temperature or 35 C. The frozen-thawed Bryde's whale spermatozoa maintained their motility and viability for at least two days at room temperature and for four days at 5 C.  (+info)

Production of Sei whale (Balaenoptera borealis) cloned embryos by inter- and intra-species somatic cell nuclear transfer. (4/16)

The objectives of this study were to choose an effective embryo reconstruction method and an effective post-activation agent for in vitro production of sei whale (Balaenoptera borealis) interspecies somatic cell nuclear transfer (iSCNT) embryos. Moreover, trichostatin A (TSA) treatment of whale iSCNT embryos was performed to improve the in vitro embryo development. In Experiment 1, the fusion rate was significantly higher (88.1%) in embryos reconstructed using the intracytoplasmic cell injection method (ICI) than that (48.7%) in the subzonal cell insertion (SUZI) counterpart. The rates of pseudopronucleus (PPN) formation (77.4 vs. 77.2%) and cleavage (24.5 vs. 37.0%) did not vary between ICI and SUZI. However, the PPN formation and cleavage rates were significantly (P<0.05) lower in the iSCNT embryos than in the parthenogenetic control (95.7% and 64.4%, respectively). Although 21.5% of the bovine parthenogenetic embryos developed to the blastocyst stage, no iSCNT embryo developed beyond the 6-cell stage. In Experiment 2, the cleavage rate did not vary between the TSA (50 nM)-treated and non-treated whale iSCNT embryos (30.5 vs. 32.3%, respectively). Moreover, it did not vary between the TSA-treated iSCNT and SCNT embryos (30.5 vs. 32.0%, respectively). Only one TSA non-treated iSCNT embryo developed to a compacted morula with 20 nuclei. One TSA-treated whale SCNT embryo developed to the 8-cell stage, and out of five whale iSCNT embryos, a 6-cell stage embryo was positive for whale DNA. In conclusion, bovine oocytes have the ability to support development of sei whale nuclei up to the 6-cell stage.  (+info)

This action plan addresses the entire set of populations of Blue, Fin, Sei and North Pacific Right Whales (Balaenoptera musculus, B. physalus, B. borealis, and Eubalaena japonica) in Canadian Pacific waters. It identifies recovery measures to implement the broad goals and objectives outlined in the Recovery Strategy for Blue, Fin and Sei Whales in Pacific Canadian Waters (Gregr et al. 2006), and the Recovery Strategy for North Pacific Right Whales (DFO 2011). All four species are being considered together because of their similar geographic distribution, common threats to survival, and the efficiency of integrating activities and resources required for recovery.
A speculative life rendering of the fossil whale [I]Balaenoptera bertae[/I] unearthed in the San Francisco Bay Area. The whale belongs within the same genus as minke and fin whales, indicating that the [I]Balaenoptera[/I] lineage has lasted for 3-4 million years. [I]Balaenoptera bertae[/I] would have been approximately 5-6 meters in length, slightly smaller than modern minke whales. It was named by University of Otago Ph.D. student Robert Boessenecker in honor of San Diego State Universitys Professor Annalisa Berta.
Balaenoptera borealis are part of the Rorquals, a group of baleen whales which include the largest animals on Earth. Sei Whales are the third largest whale after Blue Whales and Fin Whales. Their common name, sei originates from the Danish word for Pollock fish and hval is whale in Danish. These whales were named after Pollock because they were seen in abundance while Norwegian fishers hunted for Pollock fish.. Sei Whales are baleen whales, which refers to the structure of their teeth. Instead of the common mammal tooth form, baleen whales have plates for filtering foods in and filtering water out. Different baleen plate forms emphasize the type of prey food they eat; thus baleen whales tend to be specialists in their diet. Sei Whales are unique in that unlike most rorquals, they are capable of eating all types of micro-crustacean species, making it easier for this species to adapt to its environment. B. borealis also happens to be the fastest swimmer among the baleen whales. They can gain ...

The Sei Whale, also known as the Balaenoptera borealis, is the third largest rorqual inhabiting the deep offshore waters of many oceans and seas. An adult Sei Whale is 20 meters long, weighs 18 tons and consumes an average of 900 kilograms of food daily. Its diet consists of krill, copepods, and zooplankton. Sei Whales body is dark gray with white markings on the ventral surface. The skin is marked by wounds which heal to form a white scar. Its dorsal fin is sickle-shaped while the tail is thick and lobe relatively small compared to the body. Sei Whale is distinguished from other baleen whales by the absence of the lateral ridges on the dorsal surface. Sei Whale uses its baleen plates to obtain its food by widening its mouth thus taking in a great deal of water in the process. The water is then strained out through the baleen. This whale mates during the winter season with an estimated gestation period of 11 months. The young one is weaned after 7 to 10 months.. ...

ABSTRACT: Understanding the factors influencing habitat selection is critical to improving management and conservation plans for large whales. Many studies have linked the distribution of cetaceans to basic environmental features such as underwater topography and sea surface temperature (SST), but the mechanisms underlying these relationships are poorly understood. Dynamic mesoscale processes like thermal fronts are prime candidates to link physiographic factors to whale distribution because they increase biological productivity and aggregate prey. However, previous studies of large whales have found little evidence of such associations, possibly because they were not at the appropriate spatio-temporal scales. We quantified the relationship between SST fronts and the distribution of blue Balaenoptera musculus, finback B. physalus, humpback Megaptera novaeangliae and minke B. acutorostrata whales in the northern Gulf of St. Lawrence. We compared the distribution of 1094 whale sightings collected ...

Blue whales dont live in a world of excess and the decisions these animals make are critical to their survival, said Ari Friedlaender, a principal investigator with the Marine Mammal Institute at Oregon State Universitys Hatfield Marine Science Center and co-author on the study. If you stick your hand into a full bag of pretzels, youre likely to grab more than if you put your hand into a bag that only had a few pretzels.. The feeding pattern that focuses more effort on the densest krill patches provides a new example of blue whale foraging specializations that support the animals tremendous size.. This kind of lunge-feeding takes a lot more effort, but the increase in the amount of energy they get from increased krill consumption more than makes up for it, noted Jeremy Goldbogen, a marine biologist from Stanford University and co-author on the study..

Natural News) A spate of teen suicides going as far back as 2015 has been linked to the Russian Internet game, the Blue Whale Challenge. According to WND.com, the social media game has caused the suicide deaths of hundreds of teenagers the world over. Of those deaths, at least 130 have occurred in Russia alone, with the most recent ones being the suicides of two teenage girls who jumped from the roof of an apartment block.. The creation of 22-year-old Russian psychology major Philipp Budeikin, the Blue Whale Challenge involves participants being contacted by an administrator or by searching for #bluewhalechallenge on social media sites. The participants are then tasked to complete a series of challenges in a time span of 50 days. These can range from the mundane, such as drawing a whale on a piece of paper, to the dangerous, like making lengthwise cuts on the participants own arm. At the end of the 50-day period, the participants are then asked to commit suicide; those that fail to do so will ...
I dont know the caloric content of a blue whale. Some googling shows that cows weigh about a thousand pounds, and one cow can make about a thousand quarter-pound burgers. With each burger coming in at roughly 300 calories, this give a typical cow about 300,000 calories. Admittedly, this ignores non-burger stuff that we eat, but since I also dont know how meaty a blue whale is, lets just run with these numbers and see what happens ...
April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online. Researchers attempting to define populations of a medium-sized and poorly understood baleen whale say that saving the whales often means knowing - sometimes on a genetic level - one group of whales from another. A group of scientists from Wildlife Conservation Society, the American Museum of Natural History, Columbia University, NOAA, and other groups are working to define separate groups and subspecies of the Brydes whale, which are sometimes targeted by Japans scientific whaling program, found in the Indian and western Pacific Oceans.. The team was able to discriminate among different Brydes whales (pronounced BREW-dus) by generating genetic information that was akin to a bar code. The research team was able to confirm the existence of two subspecies: one is larger in size and lives in offshore waters, the other is smaller and frequents more coastal marine habitats. The results of this study are published in the Journal of ...

The 50-day online challenge requires the participant to complete different tasks, one each day. The tasks are given by an anonymous handler and the participant needs to complete the task and send photos or videos as proof.. The tasks assigned are extremely dangerous and includes self mutilation, watching horror content alone, standing at the edge of a bridge or balcony etc. The final task is always suicide and the handler gives instruction to the teen on how to end ones life..

The engulfed mass shall be pictured as a long train of individual slugs of dimensions determined not only by mouth size, but also by the whale and reflux dynamics taking place at the time each is being engulfed (figures 2 and 5). Such a slug-tracking approach has been used with great success in the past, for example in parachute inflation simulations of the recontact of the wake onto a rapidly decelerating parachute (Spahr & Wolf 1981). In the BLFm, slug dynamics will be determined by the laws of one-dimensional hydrodynamics in which all the relevant motions and forces evolve along only one dimension, namely that of the whales longitudinal axis. This follows from the assumption that the energy and momentum being transmitted to the engulfed water (while inside the cavity) are used mostly to move it forward and longitudinally, rather than to change its shape or to impart transverse sloshing and/or turbulent motion. Video footage of a rorqual whales underbelly during engulfment shows some ...
The fin whale is the second longest of all of the baleen whales, and has the typical rorqual body form, which is long, slender and streamlined. Fin whales produce a tall columnar blow that can be six metres high. The fin whale is found in all of the worlds major oceans. It is a migratory species that spends the winter months in temperate mid-latitude waters where it gives birth and mates and then it migrates to higher latitudes for intensive summer feeding.
Body size is one of the most important physiological parameters that determine the energetics of foraging in air-breathing marine vertebrates. Large body size in particular confers a variety of physiological advantages that increase foraging efficiency, including a lower cost of transport and enhanced diving capacity (Halsey et al., 2006; Williams, 1999). However, as predators increase in size they also experience decreased acceleration and maneuvering performance, both of which may limit foraging success (Domenici, 2001). Predators at the upper extreme of body mass must therefore exhibit specialized morphology to increase maneuvering performance (Miklosovic et al., 2004) or foraging strategies (i.e. cooperative foraging, corralling, tail slaps) that do not involve whole-body attacks (Domenici, 2001). Furthermore, many large-bodied predators have evolved bulk-filter feeding modes that are designed to exploit aggregations of prey items that are smaller by several orders of magnitude.. Bulk filter ...

As I mentioned in a previous post, Ive been preparing a fossil mysticete skull I collected from the Purisima Formation in 2005 for a long time (i.e. 4.5 years). This winter and spring I really stepped up preparation, and you can see in these photos what the specimen looked like in January. At this point, Tom Demere of the San Diego Natural History Museum, who specializes in fossil mysticetes, tentatively identified this specimen as belonging to Balaenoptera cortesii var. portisi, a medium sized balaenopterid from the Pliocene of Italy, Florida, and California (Demere et al. 2005). An undescribed cranium (UCMP) from the San Diego Formation and several crania Ive seen in the Purisima Formation have this same morphology, but I did not realize this taxon was B. cortesii var. portisi, or that this specimen belonged in that taxon. Balaenoptera cortesii var. portisi is characterized by elongate, widely diverging zygomatic processes, which these other fossils have; it appears that the zygomatics ...
order Cetacea, suborder Mysticeti). A family that includes the fin, humpback, and blue whales. The body is streamlined, the snout pointed, the throat and chest grooved. The dorsal fin is hooked and set far back on the body. The tail is slightly notched at the mid-line, and scalloped along the posterior edge. The cervical vertebrae are not fused. The baleen plates are broad and short, the left and right rows being joined anteriorly. The animals are typically grey on the dorsal surface, with some white on the ventral surface; but Megaptera novaengliae (humpback) may be black above and below, with white flippers. Members of the family feed on krill and small fish, and occur in both hemispheres. They grow to 7-30 m depending on species. There are six species, in two genera: Balaenoptera (B. acutorostrata, minke or lesser rorqual; B. borealis, sei; B. physalus, fin; B. musculus, blue; B. edeni, Brydes); and Megaptera novaengliae (humpback). ...
There are two types of whale: baleen and toothed.. Baleen whales have long bristle-fringed plates, known as baleen, which are made of keratin (a protein also found in human hair and fingernails) and fixed to the roof of the mouth. These sieve the minute crustaceans, such as krill, that they feed on. Baleen whales have two blowholes. And unlike some other whales, they do not use echolocation (emitting sounds to locate solid objects).. Baleen whales include the largest animals ever known. Greatest of all is the blue whale; the heaviest ever recorded was a female of 190 tonnes. Baleen whales migrate through New Zealand waters on their way south to feed on krill, which are abundant in the Southern Ocean. Of the worlds 13 species of baleen whales, eight are known in New Zealand, but only two, the southern right whale and Brydes whale, breed in New Zealand waters.. ...
Alfred the fossil whale skull: Photo credit: Ben Healley.. Monash University scientists have played a key role in discovering the origin of filter feeding in baleen whales - the largest animal known to have ever existed.. The discovery is detailed in a paper co-written with international researchers and palaeontologists from Museum Victoria. Alfred the 25- million-year-old fossilised whale skull was unveiled at the Museum today.. Alfred shows how ancient baleen whales made the evolutionary switch from biting prey with teeth to filtering using baleen, said Monash Science Senior Research Fellow, Dr Alistair Evans, one of the authors of the paper.. They first became suction feeders. Feeding in this way resulted in reduced need for teeth, so over time their teeth were lost before baleen appeared.. There has been a lot of mystery around how and when baleen first formed.. But we now have long-sought evidence of how whales evolved from having teeth to hair-like baleen - triggering the rise of ...
Take Action Now! The US Navy has prepared an Environmental Impact Statement to assess the impacts associated with a five-year authorization of military testing and training operations off the coast of the Pacific Northwest in an area that stretches from Cape Mendocino all the way north to the Canadian border, including Alaskan waters. The proposed activities are expected to injure, disturb or kill more than a hundred thousand individuals consisting of 29 different marine mammal species, which are supposed to be protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act.. Proposed activities would subject marine mammals, fish, sea turtles and other sea life to countless impacts including mid-frequency sonar, which is noise that is billions of times more intense than natural sound. The use of sonar has been directly connected to many instances of beached whales that have died from baro-trauma after military sonar exercises. Even 300 miles from the source, sonar can be up to 140 decibels, which is 100 times ...
Before the advent of whaling there were an estimated 200,000 blue whales across the globe© lionelz.wordpress.com For the first time since whaling was outlawed in 1965, blue whales-the largest animals to have ever lived-have appeared in the northern Pacific Ocean off the coast of Canada and Alaska. Experts believe that decades of hunting in the northern zones did such damage to blue whale populations that they forgot the former feeding ground. It is feasible that whales lost the cultural memory of the Alaska and British Columbia feeding destinations as a result of the intensive whaling there, says Jay Barlow of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Southwest Fisheries Science Center in La Jolla, California.. What has brought the whales back, however, is still not entirely known. It may be part of a natural cycle in which the whales are following the cool water zones in the Pacific, as temperatures there fluctuate every 20 to 30 years. Its also possible that the species ...
For over an hour I was questioned on many topics. Here are a few snippets:. Why should the noise impacts from the proposed iron sands mining operation on blue whales be considered when seismic survey activity produces noise 1,000 to 100,000 times louder?. My answer: Seismic survey noise is very loud, but its important to note that seismic and mining noises are two different types of sound sources. Seismic surveys noise is an impulsive noise (a loud bang every ~8 seconds), while the mining operation will produce non-impulsive (continuous) sound. Also, the mining operation will likely be continuous for 32 years. Therefore, these two sound sources are hard to compare. Its like comparing the impacts of listening to pile driving for a month, and listening to a vacuum cleaner for 32 years. Whats important here is to considering the cumulative effects of both these noise sources occurring at the same time: pile driving on top of vacuum cleaner.. How many blue whales have been sighted within 50 km of ...
Another non-exclusive explanation for the higher prevalence of lesions observed in blue whales when compared with fin whales could relate to differences in migration patterns. This is because UVR (and consequently skin cancer radiation dosage) varies across latitudes, being five times higher at lower latitudes when compared with mid-latitudes [18]. Across Mexico, UVR is high during most of the year, and the UV index at clear sky values (a measure of the potential human exposure to UVR) is normally 6 (high) to 15 (extreme) [28]. Thus, blue whales from the northeast pacific population that migrate annually from the feeding areas between Alaska and California [29] to the Gulf of California, where some remain for at least two months (normally arriving in January/February and leaving in April/May) [30], are abruptly exposed to higher UVR. Conversely, fin whales are year-round residents of the Gulf of California [31] and thus constantly exposed to high UVR. If, as occurs in humans, sun-induced damage ...
The majority of pre-whaling blue whales lived in the Southern Ocean, with the extremely productive Antarctic waters and waters off sub Antarctic islands being the primary feeding grounds for most of them.. It is believed that whales live for 70-90 years, give birth to 22-25 foot calves weighing 3 - 5 tons each about once every 3-5 years, fatten those calves to the tune of 220 pounds each and every day with the worlds richest milk, nurse these calves for about seven months, feed year round, and most importantly enrich the oceanic waters they inhabit by stimulating oceanic primary production (phytoplankton) with their mineral rich large fecal plumes.. Blue whales are very adept at finding and gorging krill by the millions. They make the loudest sounds in the animal kingdom and communicate with one another over distances that defy belief, likely to be 1000 miles or greater!. The brains of whales, about 9 kg in weight, may be more complex than human brains in certain areas. Observing their ...

And by biggest, do we mean the tallest, longest, or most massive? As nearly every schoolchild has heard, the Blue Whale is the most massive animal that has ever lived, stretching up to 33 meters and 180 metric tons. Not even the longest sauropod dinosaurs were as long (despite unverified claims to the contrary). But the interesting fact comes when we wonder why, over the long history of the world including giant dinosaurs and everything else, the absolute biggest would just so happen to exist now? The answer comes from math, and it has to do with the Blue Whales specialized feeding technique called lunge feeding. With a burst of speed, it opens its mouth so big as to gulp some 125% of its body weight of water, straining some half a million calories of krill. Thats a big job with a high energy cost, and it requires a lot of calories to do it. As the size of the animal goes up, the energy cost increases faster than the potential energy gain from the food. It turns out that about 33 meters is the ...

Here are some of the latest health and medical news developments, compiled by the editors of HealthDay:. Blue Whale Online Game Responsible for Teens Suicide: Family. A 15-year-old San Antonio boy committed suicide after receiving an Internet challenge, according to his family.. They said Isaiah Gonzalez was a victim of an online fad called the Blue Whale Challenge, a social media group that encourages teens to harm themselves and even commit suicide, WOAI San Antonio reported.. Isaiah was found early Saturday morning after he committed suicide. His family is urging parents to closely monitor their childrens social media use.. After joining the Blue Whale Challenge, members are assigned daily tasks for 50 days. The tasks become progressively more extreme and dangerous. If the tasks are not completed, those controlling the challenge send threats, Isaiahs older sister Alexis told WOAI San Antonio.. -----. Child Measles Deaths in Europe an Unacceptable Tragedy: WHO.

English: Baleen (also called whalebone) is a substance made of keratin and is therefore stiff but somewhat elastic. Baleen makes up baleen plates, which are arranged in two parallel rows that look like combs of thick hair; they are attached to the upper jaws of baleen whales. Whales use these combs for filter feeding ...
The sauropods most defining characteristic was their size. Even the dwarf sauropods (perhaps 5 to 6 metres, or 20 feet long) were counted among the largest animals in their ecosystem. Their only real competitors in terms of size are the rorquals, such as the blue whale. But, unlike whales, sauropods were primarily terrestrial animals.. Their body structure did not vary as much as other dinosaurs, perhaps due to size constraints, but they displayed ample variety. Some, like the diplodocids, possessed tremendously long tails, which they may have been able to crack like a whip as a signal or to deter or injure predators,[15] or to make sonic booms.[16] Supersaurus, at 33 to 34 metres (108 to 112 ft) long,[17] was the longest sauropod known from reasonably complete remains, but others, like the old record holder, Diplodocus, were also extremely long. The holotype (and now lost) vertebra of Amphicoelias fragillimus may have come from an animal 58 metres (190 ft) long;[18] its vertebral column would ...

Rescuers who are caring for a pelican found in Long Beach with its pouch slashed offered a $2,500 reward for information about the person or people responsible for mutilating the bird.. The International Bird Rescue said Long Beach Animal Care Services found the bird on April 16 in the 5400 block of Ocean Boulevard. Such injuries are not common in nature, and the clean cut and type of cut indicate the injury was intentionally done.. Although the California brown pelican was recently removed from the list of endangered species, it is a crime to hurt migratory birds, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.. Jay Holcomb, the rescue organizations director, said fishermen sometimes injure birds because they are falsely seen as competition.. Pelicans are of no threat to anyone, yet they continue to be mutilated and even killed by people who see them as competition for fish, Holcomb said in a statement. The truth is a pelicans diet is mostly anchovies and sardines - fish that are used as ...

Scaling also has an effect on the performance of organisms in fluid. This is extremely important for marine mammals and other marine organisms that rely on atmospheric oxygen to survive and carry out respiration. This can affect how fast an organism can propel itself efficiently and more importantly how long it can dive, or how long and how deep an organism can stay underwater. Heart mass and lung volume are important in determining how scaling can affect metabolic function and efficiency. Aquatic mammals, like other mammals, have the same size heart proportional to their bodies. Mammals have a heart that is about 0.6% of the total body mass across the board from a small mouse to a large Blue Whale. It can be expressed as: Heart Weight = 0.006Mb1.0, where Mb is the body mass of the individual.[39] Lung volume is also directly related to body mass in mammals (slope = 1.02). The lung has a volume of 63 ml for every kg of body mass. In addition, the tidal volume at rest in an individual is 1/10 the ...

The fin whale is the second longest of all of the baleen whales, and has the typical rorqual body form, which is long, slender and streamlined. Fin whales produce a tall columnar blow that can be six metres high. The fin whale is found in all of the worlds major oceans. It is a migratory species that spends the winter months in temperate mid-latitude waters where it gives birth and mates and then it migrates to higher latitudes for intensive summer feeding.
