Where second is always first!
Second only to the slightly bigger blue whale, the finback whale is the world’s second-biggest animal. An adult finback male can grow to over 25m in length (about 75ft), and a female can top out at 27m (about 85ft). As for mass, male finbacks grow to about 70,000kg (about 154,000lbs), while their female counterparts can grow to 120,000kg (about 265,000lbs).
