Whales are mammals, as you know. Their reproduction mechanisms and
reproductive anatomy is similar to other mammals. What is different is
the number of calves born at any one time, how often the mothers can
calf, the gestation period and the weaning period. These things all
depend on the exact species of whale that you're interested in. Your
question is a pretty big one so I'm not really sure of how to answer it
or how technical to be. Perhaps you could ask again about a specific
specie of whale?
