That’s a whale shark, not a blue whale.

Blue whales are three times the size of whale sharks (which aren’t even whales).

Thanks, corrected the image.

Wrong beetle, too.. You’d want an old one.. the newer model is much heavier.

True. Fixed it. TX

I’m pretty sure that this is a picture of a Humpback Whale

The uppest Pic is a Right Whale, not a Blue Whale.

The top photo is of a southern right whale. Photo by Brian Skerry for National Geographic. Pretty amazing, actually. It’s 40 feet long!
