It’s #FunFactFriday! #Didyouknow that Bryde’s Whales were named after the 19th Century Norwegian whaler, John Bryde (pronounced “BROO-dus”)? Bryde’s whales are found in warm seas around the world, growing to 55 feet long and 90,000 pounds as they filter out plankton, crustaceans, and small fish using their large baleen plates.⠀

It’s #FunFactFriday! Did you know that depending on who you ask, or when the research you’re reading was written, there may be as many as four species of Bryde’s whale?! The common Bryde’s whale is the largest of the three and can be found in warm waters around the world. A smaller form may be found off of the coast of southern Africa and in the Indo-Pacific and though not always officially recognized as distinct it is sometimes referred to as the Indo-Pacific Bryde’s whale. Another form found only in the Indo-Pacific is commonly referred to as the Sittang or Eden’s whale and is somewhat smaller than the common Bryde’s. Finally, while Omura’s whale is now recognized as a distinct species it used to be considered a Pygmy Bryde’s whale.⠀
