1.  Types

Whales with deep water preference are not shown.

1.1  Long-finned Pilot Whale (Globicephala melas)

It has a bulbous forehead and is jet black or dark grey with grey or white markings on throat and belly and sometimes behind dorsal fin and eye. Long-finned pilot whales often strand themselves on beaches - because they have strong family bonds, when one animal strands, the rest of the pod tends to follow.

1.2  Harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena)

It stays close to coastal areas or river estuaries. The harbour porpoise is a little smaller than the other porpoises, at about 67–85 cm (26–33 in) long at birth, weighing 6.4-10 kg. Adults of both sexes grow to 1.4 m to 1.9 m (4.6-6.2 ft). The females are heavier, with a maximum weight of around 76 kg (167 pounds) compared with the males' 61 kg (134 pounds).

They occur everywhere around 'Souls oceans.

1.3  Short-beaked_common_dolphin (Delphinus delphis)

The short-beaked common dolphin is a medium sized dolphin, smaller than the more widely-known bottlenose dolphin. Adults range between 1.6 and 2 metres (5.2 and 6.6 ft), long, and can weigh between 70 and 235 kilograms (150 and 520 lb), although a range between 70 and 110 kilograms (150 and 240 lb) is more common.

They occur everywhere around 'Souls oceans.

1.4  Common Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus)

The common bottlenose dolphin is grey in color and may be between 2 and 4 m (6.6 and 13 ft) long, and weigh between 150 and 650 kg (330 and 1,400 lb). Some bottlenose populations live closer to the shore (inshore populations) and others live further out to sea (offshore populations). Generally, offshore populations are larger, darker, and have proportionally shorter fins and beaks. Offshore poulations can migrate up to 4,200 km (2,600 mi) in a season, but inshore populations tend to move less.

These dolphins occur only in the extreme south; they do not travel into the Bay of Fundy nor do they go north of Yarmouth and Barrington.

1.5  Beluga Whale (Delphinapterus leucas)

Its body is round, particularly when well fed, and tapers less smoothly to the head than the tail. The sudden tapering to the base of its neck gives it the appearance of shoulders, unique among cetaceans. The tailfin grows and becomes increasingly and ornately curved as the animal ages. The flippers are broad and short—making them almost square-shaped. The adult beluga is rarely mistaken for any other species, because it is completely white or whitish-grey in colour.

These cetaceans are highly sociable and they regularly form small groups, or pods, that may contain between two and 25 individuals, with an average of 10 members. The rivers they most often travel up include the Saint Lawrence River. They occur everywhere around 'Souls oceans.

2.  Speech

According to our Speech Guide, this creature speaks High Speech naturally. It is therefore able to communicate with Luperci -- however, keep in mind that speech can be complicated by differences in vocal sounds (e.g., a Whale will sound much different from a Bear, even when both are speaking high speech).
