Whales are mammals, but they live in the sea. They breath air, but they can’t survive on land. Some types of whales are very large indeed. Blue whale , for example, can grow to more than 30 meters in length. They are the largest animals that lived on earth.

At a glance whales look rather like fish. However, there are some important differences in their external structures. Whales have tails that are broad, flat and horizontal. These tails function as paddles. They also have single nostrils on top of their large broad heads.

A whale has smooth and shiny skin. Beneath the skin there is a layer of fat or blubber. The fat is up to 30 cm in thickness. This fat keeps heat and fluids so that it can live in cold water.

Jada and Jedi

Hi , I’m Jedi. I have a twin sister, named Jada. We were born on August 5, 1992. We were in the eighth grade. Jada and I do everything together. We are in the same class. We dress alike. We look the same. People always get us confused. This really make Jada and I laugh. Teachers and friends always get us mixed up at school. Even our teacher has trouble telling us apart. Our mother doesn’t, though. She always knows which twin is which. Jada and I often try to confuse her, but it has never happened.

Oneday, our teacher told our mother to get one of us a different haircut, so that he could tell us apart. Jada and I were horrified. We didn’t want to look different. We liked looking the same.

Our mother came to the resque, and refused to make us cut our hair. We were happy just the way we were and didn’t want to change. Our dad just shook his head. He would have to stay confused. Jada and I didn’t care.

We knew which one was which, and that was all that mattered.
