Shore Buddies Wisdom Wednesday

Blue whales are the largest animals and have evolved from the hippopotamus. The blue whales call at 188 decibels, which is the largest sound produced by any animal on earth. They are an endangered species with just 4,500 left on the planet. They can swim up to 5 miles an hour, but on sensing danger, they can speed up to 30 miles an hour. The best part about blue whales is that they can sleep while swimming with half it's brain functioning, like a dolphin!
