Friday's fun fact - Magnificent marine mammals
There are so many facts about whales it is hard to know where to start.
Since it is the largest of them all, here are just a few big facts about the brilliant blue whale...
Did you know that blue whales can grow up to 30 metres long and can weigh upwards of 200 tonnes? Their tongue alone can weigh as much as an elephant. A blue whale's heart is the size of a Volkswagen Beetle and their heartbeat can be detected from two miles away. They can product sounds louder than a jet engine and can communicate with other whales up to 1,000 miles away.
