A Matter of Weight and Size

When it comes to their weight, an adult male southern right whale specimen ranges between 30 and 40 tons. Males have an average length of 12 meters, whereas females reach a larger size of about 13 meters. Specimens surpassing the 16 meters of length, especially females, have been spotted at Valdés Peninsula.

Approximately 65 million years ago, a large percentage of vegetables and animals suddenly became extinct. It was in the late Cretaceous period and there are various theories about it. Some scientists attribute this event to a gradual process that finally led to selective extinction. Others assert that a catastrophe, such as an asteroid hitting the Earth, caused these species mass extinction.
