Whale of the Week: Bowhead Whale (Endangered Species).

*Bowhead whales live in small pods exclusively in the Arctic Seas.

*They migrate North in the spring to feed, and South in the fall to breed.

*They measure about 60 feet in length (as long as five parked cars) and weight between 80 to 110 tons!

*Their body is blue-black but they have a white patch below the mouth.

*They have no dorsal fin.

*Their fat, or blubber, measures up to 28 inches thick, which helps keep them warm in the icy waters.
