Spotting whales in the wild is one of the most special nature experiences you can have. Usually you take a boat trip to spot them, although in some rare cases it is possible to watch them from land. Coming face to face with some of the largest animals on this planet in their natural habitat creates deep and memorable impressions. Whales are found in almost all the seas of our world. And there are many places where you can watch whales, among others in Canada, South Africa, and Sri Lanka. Whales are generally divided in two species, baleen whales and toothed whales. In general, baleen whales are larger and feed by sifting plankton out of the water through their mouths. Some examples of these whales are humpback whales, gray whales, and blue whales. Toothed whales on the other hand, are usually smaller and have teeth. They feed on mammals and fish such as penguins, seals, and smaller whales and dolphins. Killer whales and dolphins are probably the most well-known members of this group.
