10Gray Whale Groupies

Gray Whales start off our list of facts because of the unusual way they decide to reproduce. They're known for their group mating rituals. Usually gray whales will split into groups of three - one female and two males. Keep your distance if you think gray whales might be mating nearby. They've been known to mate near the surface, which means their 5ft long male parts may sometimes stick out of the water. I'm not sure we want to imagine what would happen in a worst case scenario..... It doesn't stop there though. Gray Whales are also known to participate in homosexual activities with up to five participants. These sessions sometimes last as much as 90 minutes.

9The Lonely Whale

For the past 20 years, scientists have been tracking one single whale that has became known as 52 hertz whale. It got this name because it calls in at that frequency, which is unique because it has never been heard from another whale in the world. The most unique part about the whale? No one has ever seen it.
A documentary crew is working to find the whale and track it's journey, but they have not yet done so.
