Balaena mysticetus is commonly known as the Bowhead whale, the Greenland Right Whale, Arctic, Steeple-Top, Polar, or Russian Whale.  

This species of whale lives in the Arctic and sub-Arctic waters, and unlike other whales that migrate to feed or reproduce, does not move about.

The skeleton images below were taken at the Toronto Zoo and are exact replicas of a Bowhead Whale.

 

 

Need more information about Bowhead Whales?  You may download 
a student fact-sheet about the Bowhead from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration 
- U.S. Department of Commerce here.

Did you know... 

that the Bowhead has the largest mouth of any animal?

Bowhead Whales have large skulls and bow-shaped jaws.  The skull and jaw makes up 30-40% of the length of its entire body.

Large jaws assist the whale to gobble up large amounts of prey in a single gulp although the Bowhead usually hunts for its food by swimming with its mouth open.  Known as "filter feeders", food becomes trapped in bristles attached to baleen plates.

that the Bowhead has the thickest blubber of all the whale species?  Its blubber measures between 17-19 inches thick.  This helps the whale to maintain its body heat in the frigid waters of its home.

Aquatic Animals

 

"Many men go fishing 
all of their lives 
without knowing 
that it is not fish 
they are after."

~ Henry David 
Thoreau ~

 

 

"I never drink water 
because of the 
disgusting things 
that fish do in it."

~ W.C. Fields ~

 

Fun Fish Facts


- Catfish have over 27,000 taste buds while humans have only 7,000.

 

 

- Sharks are the only fish that have eyelids.

 

 

- As a fish grows, the number of its scales does not increase.  Instead, each scale increases in size.  You can determine the age of a fish by the number of growth rings on the scales.

 

 

- Most fish have air bladders that help to keep them afloat.  Sharks don't have them and must either swim continually or rest on the bottom of the ocean.

 

 

Did you know...

that a fish can drown?  Since fish need oxygen just like we do, if there isn't enough oxygen in the water, they will drown.
