Water-blowing whales

0:00:370:00:39

And ships with windy sails.

0:00:390:00:41

Let's dive into those facts.

0:00:410:00:43

First up, there is twice as much ocean on Earth as dry land.

0:00:440:00:49

That sure is a lot of seaside.

0:00:490:00:51

The seas and oceans cover so much of the planet that from way out

0:00:510:00:55

in space the Earth looks like a big blue marble.

0:00:550:00:58

All that water means a lot of sailing,

0:00:580:01:00

and on old maps of the oceans,

0:01:000:01:03

sea monsters were drawn to show places that hadn't been explored.

0:01:030:01:07

You wouldn't want to bump into them during a seaside paddle!

0:01:070:01:10

Next, a blue whale's tongue is as big as an elephant.

0:01:100:01:14

Who would have TRUNK it?

0:01:140:01:17

Blue whales are the largest animals ever to have lived on our planet.

0:01:170:01:22

They might have a giant tongue, but whales don't have any teeth,

0:01:220:01:26

and they eat the tiniest of sea creatures -

0:01:260:01:28

little critters called krill.

0:01:280:01:30

When it comes to being a bigmouth, the blue whale has got it licked!

0:01:300:01:35

Next, some oceans are heavier than others.

0:01:350:01:39

I'll take that with a pinch of salt!

0:01:390:01:42

All seawater has salt in it that has washed into the ocean

0:01:420:01:46

from rocks on land.

0:01:460:01:48

But some oceans have more salt than others,

0:01:480:01:50

and the saltier the water, the more it weighs.

0:01:500:01:54

What's super about salt is the more that's in the sea,

0:01:540:01:58

the easier it is to float in,

0:01:580:02:00

and that should really float your boat.

0:02:000:02:04

And finally, in the deep, dark ocean

0:02:040:02:07

there are fish that make their own light.

0:02:070:02:09

Sounds a bit fishy to me.

0:02:090:02:11

These fantastic bright sparks have a special part of their body

0:02:110:02:15

that glows and shines.

0:02:150:02:17

The light makes it easier for the fish to catch food,

0:02:170:02:19

hook up with their friends, or scare off other sea creatures.

0:02:190:02:24

Some shimmery swimmers can even flash their lights on and off.

0:02:240:02:27

Anyone for a dance at the underwater disco? Fact!

0:02:270:02:31

You can join The Let's Go Club too.

0:02:320:02:34

Just grab a grown-up and head to the CBeebies website.

0:02:340:02:37

There are songs to sing along to, things to make and do,

0:02:370:02:41

and CBeebies Radio too!

0:02:410:02:42

Remember, we're the club that never closes.
