The gray whale is a baleen whale and so it feeds mainly on krill and other very small crustaceans. the grey whale also lives in pods of 3-16 whales but they form groups of hundreds of whales when in feeding groups. The grey whale lives mainly on the coast from Alaska down to Mexico and that is their migration route too. Their gestation period is about 13 months and a newborn calf weighs as much as 1.8 tons. Grey whales have a life expectancy of about 50-60 years and  they are a protected species. Grey whales grow  to be 45-50 feet in length at the most, females are slightly larger than females though. The grey whale also can grow to be 36 tonnes! Overall the grey whale is an amazing and beautiful animal.
