Another impressive mammal is this bowhead whale - they are the fattest animals in the world. They have up to 50 tonnes - the weight of about 10 elephants - of body fat to keep them warm and snug.

This grey whale looks a bit grumpy. They travel from warm breeding grounds at the equator to their summer feeding grounds in the Arctic and it's thought to be the longest yearly trip that any mammal makes.
