The California Gray Whale is a mammal not a fish. They have live babies and
nurse them. They California Gray whale is mottled light to dark gray in color. A
California Gray Whale can be 45 feet long and weigh 40 tons. They have 2
pectoral fins that they use for steering. The California gray whale has no teeth
and no dorsal fin. They have ridges or bumps which are sometimes called
knuckles. You will often find lice that are yellow in color and barnacle
that are white in color. These type of parasites are only found on the
Gray Whale. Below you will find a few photos that I snapped on a whale watching
tour called the Hornblower in San Diego California. It was fascinating.
There were three California gray whales playing with a clump of sea weed.
We followed them around for about 45 minutes. They continued popping in
and out of the water that whole time.
