The gray whale is a mammal. Like all mammals, it bears live
young, breathes air, is warm blooded, and nurses its young.
The gray whale is in the scientific order Cetacea (from the Latin "cetus"),
and in the sub-order Mysticeti (from the Latin for mustache). All Mysticeti
whales have baleen fringes inside their mouth rather than teeth, and they
have two blowholes.
