Quotes from The Blue Whale

  • “A blue whale can measure up to 100 feet. That is the same length as a truck, a digger, a boat, a car, a bicycle, a motorcycle, a van, and a tractor–all lined up.”
  • “An averagee blue whale weighs around 160 tons, or about the same as a heap of 55 hippopotami.”
  • “No land animal can be as big as a blue whale because no bone structure can be strong enough to support such colossal weight out of the water.”
