The animal of the day is the Humpback Whale. (Did you know: Humpback Whales are the planets LOUDEST creature! Their songs can carry for up to 100 plus miles! That’s like sitting in New York and yelling at your buddy in Washington D.C.!
Humpback whales are also recognizable by the large amount of barnacles they have otheir head and flippers. They carry more barnacles than any other whale, and recently scientists have found that the males use their barnacles as ‘brass knuckles’ when fighting for females during mating season!
Also, Happy Birthday to John James Audobon! A great naturalist, painter and animal lover!
