Origins and taxonomy

See also: Evolution of cetaceans List of whale species
All cetaceans , including whales, dolphins and porpoises, are descendants of land-living mammals of the Artiodactyl order (even-toed ungulate animals). Both cetaceans and artiodactyl are now classified under the super-order Cetartiodactyla which includes both whales and hippos . In fact, whales are the closest living relatives of hippos; they evolved from a common ancestor at around 54 million years ago. Whales entered the water roughly 50 million years ago.

All About Whales
Whales are by far the largest creatures currently living on earth today, and are among the most massive to have ever existed. Members of the Cetacean order, which also includes the dolphin and the porpoise, whales are among a very unique group of mammals that spend their entire life in the sea. Whales evolved from land dwelling mammals, and are believed to have first entered the water about 50 million years ago. Differing from many other sea creatures, whales are fully warm blooded animals that breathe oxygen in the air through their lungs. Overtime, whales have adapted to their aquatic surroundings, which includes body shape as well as developing a tremendous lung capacity. Many whales can remain under water without coming up for air for as long as 2 hours! Like dolphins and porpoises, whales breathe through a blowhole, which is located on the top of the head so that the whale can breathe while continuing to keep the rest of its body fully submerged. The Blue whale is the largest of the whales, as well as the largest animal ever known to have existed on earth, measuring in at up to a whopping 94 feet long with a staggering weight of 180 tons! There are currently more than 40 discovered whale species. Most whales are either classified as baleen whales or toothed whales. Baleen whales, which include the blue whale, the humpback whale and the gray whale among others, are characterized by having baleen plates in the front of their mouth instead of teeth for filtering their food from the water. Toothed whales, like the sperm whale, the beluga whale and the beaked whale, have teeth and usually feed on fish and other smaller sea creatures.

The Blue Whale is the largest animal ever to have lived on earth, at up to 100 tons, easily out-weighing the heaviest dinosaurs, even an "ordinary " sized whale is a vast and impressive creature. Whales are huge, but elusive and difficult to see which adds to their mystery and fascination. They are highly intelligent animals with an elaborate social life, no possessions and the complete freedom of movement in three dimensions. Is it any wonder that they are such popular and fascinating animals? - maybe we just want to be like them! Whales belong to the group of mammals called Cetaceans , they are a part of this group along with dolphins and porpoises. Whales are mammals as are humans, dogs, cats, elephants and anguantibos amongst others. This means that they are not fish.

Dolphins and Whales
Information and Photos about Dolphins, Whales and Marine Mammals
A website dedicated to bringing you information and quality pictures of various species of whales and dolphins. Whales and Dolphins are Cetaceans - a group of mammals which belong to the order Cetacea. There are two classifications of Cetacea - Odontoceti (toothed Whales) and Mysticeti (baleen whales). Whales are large, aquatic mammals that breathe air through either one or two blowholes into their lungs. Toothed whales such as Killer Whales Sperm Whales , and Beluga Whales prey on fish, squid, or marine mammals using echolocation. Baleen whales such as Humpback Whales Gray Whales , and Minke Whales feed on tiny crustaceans, small fish and plankton. They use their baleen to filter the food from the water and are generally larger than toothed whales. Belonging to the odontoceti or toothed whale cetacea, and family Delphinidae, the largest family of the cetacean order, there are 26 living species of dolphins. Most species of dolphins feed mainly on small schooling fish and squid although some species prey on crabs, shrimps, and lobsters. Dolphins can be found in all oceans and major seas around the world. Each species of dolphin has adapted to life in their particular marine environment, allowing them to specialize in catching and eating food specific to that area.
