The Fin whale is an fairly endangered animal. They are very large whales, and the ones that live in the northern hemisphere can be around 60 feet. The ones in the southern hemisphere tend to reach closer to 70 feet. It is the same for males and females. Fin whales can be found in all the major oceans, with water temps polar and tropical. Though the Fin whale can live in different temperatures, they are found more commonly in colder climates. The only known predator of the Fin Whale is the killer whale, and even so, there are not many sightings of attacks. The Fin Whale is a baleen whale, and it eats only small fish, squid and other little crustaceans. The gestation period for a calf is 11-12 months.

Fun fact: fin whales can live up to 140 years!

A pretty calm looking Chausie.

The Chausie can be three colors. Black, brown ticked tabby, and black grizzled tabby. They were bred from the wild Jungle cat. Males are usually 9-15 pounds, and females 7-10. These cats are very active and athletic, and like most cats, pretty intelligent. However, these cats do not like to be left alone, so either have a human companion or other cat with them.

This is a seal-point Birman cat.

The Birman cat is distinguished by it’s paws, which are pure white. They are a colorpoint breed, and have a coat that varies in color from eggshell to golden. They can be tabby (which is known as lynx) and normal. This cat has medium/long hair, and deep blue eyes. Their marks are darker in color, and vary a lot. Kittens are born white, and after a while they develop other colors. Birman cats are also very gentle and friendly. There is a lot of legend around their origin, but they came from Myanmar.
