Gray whales are uniquely bottom feeding animals.  They roll on their side and suck up sediment whilst slowly swimming along the seafloor.


In the North Pacific, gray whales live in two places: the eastern North Pacific stock, which lives along the west coast of North America, and the western North Pacific stock, which lives along the east coast of Asia.

Breeding & Lifespan

Gray whales give birth every two to three years. They mature sexually at 5–12 years and have one calf after 12–13 months. During the northward migration, mothers and calves may stay near to shore to avoid killer whales.
