Caption

A Greenland Whale Breaching, Bowhead whale (Balaena mysticetus) from Jardine's "Naturalist's Library", Whales, Plate 23 Volume VI, from artwork of Stewart engraved by W. H. Lizars. Original hand colouring. This large arctic whale (up to 100 tons) was nearly hunted out prior to the whaling moratorium and may be now be back to half its estimated former population of 50, 000. It is perhaps the longest lived of all mammals and second only in mass to the blue whale.
