Fun Blue Whale Facts!

The planet is covered with amazing, fascinating creatures, but the blue whale is in a league of its own.

  • The blue whale, is the largest animal ever known to have lived on the planet, including all dinosaurs. They are gigantic. Generally ranging in length from 80 to 100 feet, the longest one ever recorded was 108 feet long. That's about as long as three school buses lined up end to end. 
  • As a blue whale dives to feed, its giant heart may only beat twice per minute. 
  • A blue whale’s tongue alone can weigh as much as an elephant.
  • Blue whales are the loudest animals on the planet. A jet engine registers at 140 decibels; the call of a blue whale reaches 188. Their language of pulses, groans, and moans can be heard by others up to 1,600 kilometers away. 
  • The oldest blue whale they’ve discovered was calculated to be around 100 years old, though the average life span is thought to last around 80 to 90 years.
