Hi Howard,

There is a lot of information on the life histories of whales on the internet and lots of pictures too. You can start by going to "How to Find" (http://whale.wheelock.edu/howtofind.html) page on WhaleNet. You'll have to decide if you want to look at toothed whales or baleen ones since some of the stages differ. You'll want to look at length of gestation and lactation, and time to sexual maturity. You'll also want to look at whether they migrate seasonally or not.

Good luck,

Cathy

Subject: a whales circle of life

                Hi! I am interested in whales. I would like to know if you could send me a picture of the circle of life of a whale. I mean first you are born........death. I am doing this for a school project on whales. It must include the circle of life of a whale. I am trying to do research on it. Thank!
