Whales and Narwhales Skulls and Tusks
Shop for Whales and Narwhales Skulls and Tusks - Whale is the common name for various marine mammals of the order Cetacea. The term whale sometimes refers to all cetaceans, but more often it excludes dolphins and porpoises, which belong to the suborder Odontoceti or toothed whales. This suborder includes the sperm whale, killer whale, pilot whale, and beluga whale. The other Cetacean suborder, Mysticeti or baleen whales, comprises filter feeders that eat small organisms caught by straining seawater through a comb like structure found in the mouth called baleen. This suborder includes the blue whale, the humpback whale, the bowhead whale and the minke whale. All cetaceans have forelimbs modified as fins, a tail with horizontal flukes, and nasal openings called blowholes on top of the head.
Whales range in size from the blue whale, the largest animal known to have ever existed at 30 m or 98 ft and 180 tonnes or 180 long  to various pygmy species, such as the pygmy sperm whale at 3.5 m or 11 ft. Whales inhabit all the worlds oceans and number in the millions, with annual population growth rate estimates for various species ranging from 3 to 13 percent.
