Caption: Right whales. Computer artwork of a female right whale with its calf. The gestation period is just over a month. The calf feeds on its mother's milk for its first year. Adult right whales can reach over 16 metres in length and over 100 tonnes in weight. They are baleen whales that feed on food filtered from the water by baleen plates in their mouths. There are two right whales species: the northern right whale (Eubalaena glacialis) and the southern right whale (Eubalaena australis), found in the northern and southern oceans respectively. Some consider northern and southern right whales to be subspecies. This whale was so-named because it was considered the right whale to hunt.
