Did you know that the blue whale is the largest animal that has ever lived? They can grow up to 90 feet (or more!) and can weigh as much as 24 elephants. Some whales can even live for 200 years or more and some can dive deep. In 2014, a Cuvier’s beaked whale made one of the deepest dives at 1.9 miles. Like how are whales even real? They’re out of this world (No wonder your kid is obsessed).
