It’s #FunFactFriday! #DYK that Harbour Porpoises have Megatestes?! That’s right, male Harbour Porpoise testes can swell to 4% of their body mass. The idea is to produce so much sperm that other males’ competing sperm is flooded out or just outnumbered in the female’s reproductive tract. If humans employed the same mating strategy, human testes would be 1.25 kg each (compared to the 17-27 g they are now). That’s at least 46 x bigger. #whaletales #porpoise #didyouknow #trivia #fff #porpoiseareawesome #harbourporpoise #porpoiseofinstagram #getonaboat #exploreBC #salishsea#porpoisewatching #howesound #yvr⠀

It’s #FunFactFriday! Did you know that Minke Whales are the smallest of the baleen whales, and are in fact smaller than some toothed whales?! Though size can be hard to judge on the water they are easily distinguished from other whales by the white “mittens” or patterns they have on their pectoral flippers. Sometimes called “stinky Minke” these whales do have a powerful blow for their size and the smell does carry well over the water.⠀⠀

It’s #FunFactFriday! Did you know that the Cuvier’s Beaked Whale is also know as the Goose-beaked Whale and is the most widely distributed of all the beaked whales?! It can be found in almost every ocean diving into the deep, offshore waters from the tropics to the cool, temperate seas!⠀ ⁣

It’s the last #FunFactFriday of #DolphinAwarenessMonth! #Didyouknow that Risso’s Dolphins are found all over the world in temperate and tropical waters? The scars on their bodies are formed through social interactions with each other and their patterns can change throughout their life as they develop new scars.
