Blue Whale Photos - Found in All Oceans of the World

Top Right Solid Corner

The blue whale, Balaenoptera musculus, is blue-gray in color, often with lighter gray mottling on a darker background. Blue whales may be found in all oceans of the world. They migrate to tropical-to-temperate waters during winter months to mate and give birth to calves. They can feed throughout their range, in polar, temperate, or even tropical waters. There are four sub-species: Balaenoptera musculus musculus, Northern blue whale which inhabits the north Atlantic and north Pacific; Balaenoptera musculus intermedia, Antarctic or Southern blue whale; Balaenoptera musculus indica, Indian Ocean blue whale; and Balaenoptera musculus brevicauda, the pygmy blue whale.  In all of them, the  body is long, somewhat tapered, and streamlined, with the head making up less than one-fourth of its total body length.
