Commerson dolphin

Fun fact of the day…

The commerson dolphin doesn’t look much like a dolphin at all. With its short rounded head, it could easily be mistaken for a porpoise. But its unique black-and-white coloring makes it look more like a miniature killer whale.

Hope you have a Whale of a day.

Happy Whale everyone.

Now only if I was working today I could draw pictures of whales for the children at the daycare to colour… it is really hard to draw pictures of scotch tape for them to colour… haha.

Those are for people that want colouring pages but do not want to draw them out 🙂

Anyways, my favourite whale by far is the orca whale I think they are so amazing! I use to beg my grama to take me to the aquarium all the time to see them. Though I know it is bad for them to be trapped in an aquarium.
