Dear Jen,

 I am doing a research project on whales for school and I was wondering what
a whale's life span is?

I am in first grade, and my name is Kelsy.

Thanks a lot!

Sincerely,

Kelsy Alston

Kelsy,

We think whales live to be about 80 to 100 years. The oldest known whale
lived to be about 115 years old, and scientists have some evidence that
bowhead whales may live to be 200! We are not sure about that yet, though.

Good luck on your project!

Jen Philips
