Fin Whales are the second largest species of whale and the second largest living animal, with only the blue whale being larger. They are between 19 and 26.8 m (62 - 88 ft) in length and they weigh between 45 and 75 tonnes (44.5 - 74 tons).
Fin Whales can be found worldwide.
Fin Whales feed on small schooling fish, squid and crustaceans such as krill.
After a 12 month gestation period a single calf is born. At birth the calf is between 5.5 and 6.5 m (18 - 21 ft) in length and it weighs around 2 tons (1,814 Kgs). They are weaned at 9 - 10 months old and males reach sexual maturity at 6 - 10 years of age.
Due to the length of the gestation and nursing periods, Fin Whales have a birthing interval of 3 - 4 years.
