Laurasia was the northern supercontinent formed after Pangaea broke up during the Jurassic period. Laurasia included what are now North America, Europe, Asia, Greenland, and Iceland.
The Linnean System is a method of classifying organisms based on a simple hierarchical structure. Organisms are divided into groups using the following system: Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus and Species.
A lobe is a single, rounded part of the body, such as part of a whales flukes (tail).
Lobtailing is a cetacean activity in which the animal sticks its tail out of the water into the air, swings it around, and then slaps it on the water's surface. It makes a very loud sound. The meaning or purpose of lobtailing is unknown, but may be done as a warning to the rest of the pod. Humpbacks lobtail more when the seas are rough and stormy.
Logging is when a whale lies still at the surface of the water, resting, with its tail hanging down. While floating motionless, part of the head, the dorsal fin or parts of the back are exposed at the surface.
Lungs are organs that many animals use to breathe air. All cetaceans (whales, porpoises, and dolphins) have lungs.
