Adult Bryde's whale (Balaenoptera edeni) surface skim feeding on euphausids off Isla del Carmen in the southern Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez), Baja California Sur, Mexico. MORE INFO Bryde's whales are the least known of the large baleen whales, yet perhaps the most common species of rorqual in the Gulf of California. They have long been confused with sei whales, and there may be as many as three distinct species of Bryde's-like rorqual whales. They prefer tropical and temperate waters as oppossed to polar waters that other rorquals frequent to feed in.

A small pod of Type B Orca (Orcinus nanus) traveling in ice in Crystal Sound on the western side of the Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctica. Killer Whales are found in all oceans and most seas, including (unusually for cetaceans) the Mediterranean and Arabian Seas. However, they prefer cooler temperate and polar regions.Males typically range from 6-8 m long (19-26 ft) and weigh in excess of 6 tons. Females are smaller, generally ranging from 5-7 m (16-23 ft) and weighing about 3 to 4 tons. The largest Killer Whale ever recorded was a male off the coast of Japan, measuring 9.8 m (32 ft) and weighing over 8 tons (17,636 lb). Calves at birth weigh about 180 kg (350-500 lb) and are about 2.4 m long (6-8 ft). The Killer Whale's large size and strength make it among the fastest marine mammals, often reaching speeds in excess of 56 km/h (35 mph). These animals are also often called killer whales, but this is a misnomer as this is actually the largest member of the dolphin family. The Type B Orca is a proposed new species called Orcinus nanus, though this is not universally accepted in the scientific community yet. Antarctic population estimate is70,000?80,000.
