Beluga Whales SWJCS
Transcript of Beluga Whales SWJCS
Beluga Whales do not have much predators. Here are three of those predators- Killer Whales, Polar Bears, and us! People have hunted Beluga Whales for hundreds of years but now they are only hunted by a few Arctic dwelling tribes.
How They Talk
The beluga whale has 34 teeth that are not designed for chewing so they swallow their food whole. They eat fish, squid, crustaceans, octopus, and worms.
Diet and Teeth
Beluga whales have a forehead that is called a melon because of it's size.
The melon is flexible and can change shape which allows them to make different facial expressions.

Beluga Whales have white skin and lots of fat that is called blubber. Their blubber keeps them warm in the freezing arctic waters. They have rounded flippers that help them turn. They weigh about 1.5 tons. They can can be as long as 8.5-22 feet!
Since the climate has been changing the ice is melting which means the beluga whales are in danger. Beluga whales rely on ice for hiding spots since they are not fast enough to swim away from predators. Beluga whales are also hunted for their blubber.
Beluga Whales can produce a series of chirps, whistles, clicks, and squeals. The sounds they make gave them the name " the
canary of the sea." The sounds may sound like music or nonsense to us but the beluga whales really can talk!
Beluga whales calves are born in spring. Once a calf is born it has to go to the surface immediately to get its first breath or it could die. A calf is usually dark gray or brown, as it grows older it turns white.
