I am 7 years old.  I love whales, dolphins and manatees.  I would like
to know how fast can a whale swim?  How many teeth does a whale have? 
Please e-mail me at  Thank you!

Hello bow, 

     Good questions but they are hard to answer. There are seventy nine 
known types of whales. Some have teeth and some do not. Can you please 
ask me more specific questions? Whales with teeth generally swim faster 
than whales without teeth but not always. If you have   questions about 
special kinds of whales please tell me what whales they are. Do not 
dolphins are whales too.

                  Ask again please
