The Greatest Migrators

Gray whales are one of the greatest migrators in the animal kingdom, swimming up to 12,000 miles annually from their Alaskan summer home to the warmer waters of the Mexican Pacific coast in the winter for breeding. The largest population of the animals is found in this North American range, however, there is an endangered population in the western North Pacific near Korea as well. Their rough looking appearance and docile behavior at the surface has earned these mammals the nickname ‘breathing rocks.’ In addition to the white and gray patches covering their dark skin, giving them their name, they are also covered with barnacles and whale lice.
