Hello folks!
Just want to share another thing that interests me :)

I think you have learned what "kingdom", "class", "order", "family", "phylum" are during Science or Biology class, haven't you? 8-)
Cetacea is order.

Whales, dolphins and porpoises are cetaceans. They are mammals, not fish, okay? (lol, acting like a Science teacher :D , I think most of you have known about it.)

One of my dreams is to scubadive with these animals, especially bottlenose dolphins :D

Image
This is a killer whale or orca trying to munch the penguins. Though it has the size of a whale and its name is 'killer whale', killer whales do not belong to whale family. They belong to dolphin family (delphinidae). Even though killer whale is not the largest cetacean, it is the deadliest cetacean and killer whales eat much larger whales such as humpback whales. Humbpack whales and most of other whales do not have teeth but they have baleen.

Image
These are bottlenose dolphins.

Humpback whale. And the image below is a humpback whale's tail.

Below are narwhals. Narwhals are like the unicorns of the ocean :)

Beluga whales

The picture above has once been made as my phone wallpaper :)
Image
Awwwww the above picture is so cute :D
A fact about beluga whales: a beluga whale was born grey but its colour fades over time and becomes white when it becomes an adult beluga whale.

Image
Pilot whale. Pilot whales also do not belong to whale family. They belong to dolphin family instead.

Image
Blue whale, the largest mammal and the largest animal in the world.

Image
This is a river dolphin. Its colour is pink. Unique, isn't it? ;)

Image
This is a porpoise. Porpoises are a little bit smaller than bottlenose dophins.

Image
These are dusky dolphins.

Anyways, none of the above, including blue whales, ever eat humans.

Hope you guys enjoy it :)
God-willing, I will create post about other marine mammals :)

SubhanAllah these are amazing shots!
The Beluga whales are tooooo cute! The first pic looks like they are singing lol and the second is just adorable!

This post reminded me of the verse,"Do they not see the birds above them with wings outspread and [sometimes] folded in? None holds them [aloft] except the Most Merciful. Indeed He is, of all things, Seeing." (67:19)
Although it is referring to birds, it goes towards every other creation on Earth. A reminder to believers that only Allah could create such creatures that can only survive underwater, He is the creator of all, the Supreme.

How do you know whales don't eat humans? What about Jonah, he was swallowed by a whale - not digested granted, but maybe the whale was at least planning on eating him.
