The Life of the WF Blue Whale
The National Park Service has described the whales in West Virginia as being the largest blue whales. This is an enormous undertaking for the Park Service and the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration (NOAA). In fact, it is not uncommon to have to backtrack and relabble when it comes to the scientific naming of a whale. If the blue whale was called the WFBC Blue, it would be confusing since the scientific name has already been applied to the animal. In fact, the only two words allowed for the West Virginia Whale National Park are ” whales” and “blue.”
A common mistake made by people who work in or visit the whales’ enclosure is confusing the West Virginia population with the population of blue whales. For example, they call one whale the ‘WV-2’. The newborn calves that come into the park after leaving the sea also are called ‘WV-2’s.’ In short, when it comes to naming the West Virginia Whale population, you have to be careful in how you do it.
There are several different subspecies within the West Virginia Whale National Park. Some, such as the WFBC Blue, are genetically identical. This means that all of them are WV-2 whales and all of them should be seen together. However, in some locations, whales can be classified as a subspecies when it comes to the shape of their skeleton or the color of their skin and the like.
Blue whales, unlike the common sperm whales, are not social species. In fact, they hunt and feed alone. They have never had a single mate in their lifetime, which makes it impossible to study in detail their behavior or genetics. There is no way to tell what color the reproductive organs will be until they are born.
During the mating season, female blue whales give birth to one or two calves. The number of calves grows with each pregnancy. A single calf will grow to about two feet long.
When it comes to human beings, blue whales are considered to be the most intelligent creature on earth. Scientists have even said that they are capable of self-repairing. In fact, they are said to be able to repair most any damage they experience, which makes it possible for the whales to rebuild themselves after being damaged by human ships or other ships’ propellers and collisions.
Scientists have noticed that blue whales spend a lot of time close to shore, in order to avoid being caught by ships. They also spend a lot of time going along the coastlines looking for food, since feeding can only be done at certain times of the year. Finally, after a very long journey, these majestic creatures return to their waters home. For this reason, scientists believe that the blue whales are choosing to live at sea for at least five years.
One of the fascinating things about these massive animals is that they have an almost hypnotic power over humans. Researchers have noticed that whales will often take the form of statues in order to communicate with humans. If you are on the ocean and come across a whale, try to approach it slowly. One thing you should always do is pay close attention to its eyes. These eyes are very sensitive.
