Right Whale


Second only to the Blue Whale, the Right Whale is one of the largest animals on planet Earth and can grow up to 65 feet long, weighing in at over 90 tons. Their name actually comes from old whaler terminology when they were indicated as the ƒ??rightƒ?� whale to hunt.
Scientific Name: Genus Eubalaena
Characteristics: Despite their massive size, right whales are fairly docile and many whale-watching expeditions venture out to meet them in the colder winter months. Do some whale watching of your own with this exquisitely crafted figurine, hand-painted and professionally sculpted with immaculate realism.
Size and Color: Right whales are predominantly black, but what sets them apart from other whales in terms of physical appearance are the white patches above their eyes and around their mouths, which are actually rough patches of skin due to whale lice. 9.25 inches long and 5 inches wide, this figurine is a little longer than the width of a legal sized piece of paper and is as wide as a soda can is tall.
Non-toxic and BPA free.
