Did you know Big sea animals info


When Guides was looking into the Sea Animals the following information was put forward from somewhere.  The younger  Guides found that the information was hard to figure out number wise.  So we filled a jar with hundreds and thousands and spread these all over the floor.  Interestingly the Guides insisted that the blue ones were Dolphins, red ones for the Hourglass Whale and the yellow ones Minke Whales.  Collecting just their chosen animal [ that color H & T] they tried to save their animal before the their existence was swept aside [ clean up with the brush and shovel].  Eventually one of the older Guides got out the vacuum cleaner and said ‘mans inventions poison the world’.  So doing turned on the vacuum and cleaned the floor.  The problem remained of what to do with the ‘saved’ mammals.

• The humpback whale lives in the Antarctic as well as throughout the world’s seas? Their length ranges from 14 to over 15 metres and they weigh 30,000 to 40,000 kilograms.

• The hourglass dolphin mainly lives in waters with a temperature of less than five degrees centigrade. It has a distinctive black and white pattern.’

• Minke whales can be found in large groups of up to 1,000 in the Antarctic waters. They can also be found worldwide but rarely in tropical waters. These whales are bluish-grey in colour and grow up to eight metres in length and normally weigh between 5,800 and 7,250 kilograms.

• The killer whale occurs worldwide, preferring coastal areas and cooler waters. Their colour is basically black and white and they are distinguished by a tall fin. They feed on warm­blooded prey such as birds and seals.

The Guides who did this activity have grown up now.  Recently one of them sent a connection via face book re dolphin killing.  It has been good to see that what she was introduced to has remained a factor within her current adult life.
