Back to this week's update.

Baby Face!
Here you are, face-to-face with a baby gray whale. The nursery lagoons in Mexico are booming with babies at this time of year. How would you describe the baby? How fast do you think it grows? How much does it eat? What must it learn? Soon the newest generation will join Mom for the gray whale migration—the greatest parade and one of the longest mammal migrations on Earth. It's a big deal!
