Top 10 Most Powerful Navies in the World

best navy in the world

Perhaps you know which country has the best and strongest navy.
But are you not concerned about which countries are behind THAT?
Since the sea was navigable, empires from early ages began to the race to conquer the 70% earth, and the ability to project naval strength across oceans is a defining feature.
The list below, based on data compiled in Global Firepower’s 2018 world navy ranking by the number of offensive & defensive assets they have.
Check out the most powerful top 10 navies in the world:

10.Taiwan (Republic of China Navy)

top 10 navy in the world
  • 2 Assault submarines.
  • 8 Anti mines
  • 22 Frigates.
  • 4 destroyers.
  • 12 Patrol vessels.

The Republic of China Navy has significantly improved its naval defense technology over the past two decades, primarily by buying ships from the US and some warships from other countries.
Taiwan can also construct its own vessels, too.
The Taiwanese Navy comprises nearly 38,000 operational personnel with over 100 active ships which includes over 4 destroyers, 20 frigates, 31 boats with missiles, 2 submarines, 12 patrol boats, 1 corvette, 9 minesweepers, 10 auxiliary warships, 10 amphibious ships, and 28 aircraft.
The ROC’s primary task is to protect its surrounding waters and territories against a possible blockade, attack, or invasion by the People’s Republic of China.
The Chinese navy is far more powerful than Taiwanese, however, if both countries are engaged in maritime warfare, you can count on Taiwan to fight well.
This deployment protects the Taiwan Strait and adjacent seas by naval exercises and counter-strike wartime counter-invasion activities.
The Taiwanese navy competed for the 10th spot on this most powerful navy in the world list with the Indonesian navy.
There are twice as many active personnel and considerably more ships in the Indonesian navy, but they limit most of their warships to seafarers.
Another powerful player that we could not include among the strongest navies is the Turkish navy, which has a large coastal fleet and is primarily designed to operate in the Mediterranean region.

9.Italy (Italian Navy)

most powerful navy in the world
  • 2 Aircraft carrier.
  • 6 Assault submarines.
  • 17 Anti mines
  • 12 Frigates.
  • 3 landing vessels.
  • 4 destroyers.
  • 14 Patrol vessels.

There is a naval fleet with some 31,000 personnel in the Italian Navy (officially Marina Militare Italiana).
Italian Navy operates warships of all types.
There is one aircraft carrier from Cavour light, which is also their flagship.
It can handle V/STOL (e.g. Harriers and F-35Bs), helicopters and aircraft systems.
The Cavour can transport while holding troops and vehicles as well.
A smaller aircraft carrier with the Italian navy named Giuseppe Garibaldi in service.
It was known as the Royal Marine until, after the Second World War, as the Kingdom of Italy was replaced by the Republic of Italy.
The fleet comprises two aircraft carriers, eight submarines of attack, three amphibious attack craft, four destroyers, thirteen frigates, two corvettes, 10 coastal patrol boats, ten offshore patrolling ships, and four coastal patrol vessels.
There are 6 active anti-submarine frigates of Maestrale-class frigate. Although the decommissioning of all these warships is to take place in the next few years.
The Marine Brigade of Italy has a strength of 3,800 men, and the Navy recruits the amphibious brigade on 3 amphibious transport vessels of the San Giorgio class.
Navy built it on considering enhanced standards which can bring more troops compared to the third ship of San Giusto class.
Italy is reportedly developing a new amphibian attack boat from Trieste.
By 2022, this would take effect to replace the light aircraft carrier, Giuseppe Garibaldi.

8.South Korea (Republic of Korea Navy)

  • 1 Amphibious attack ships.
  • 13 Assault submarines.
  • 10 Anti mines
  • 9 Frigates.
  • 10 destroyers.
  • 2 Patrol vessels.

South Korean Armed Forces are responsible for naval and amphibious landing activities.
South Korea’s navy has been constantly improving since the 1990s, just like Taiwan.
But unlike the Taiwanese Navy, which imports many ships from western countries, the South Korean Navy operates every vessel made in their homeland.
Most of them are designed & manufactured by state-owned companies, while private firms like Hyundai and Daewoo make the rest of the armed vessels.
South Korea has about 70,000 active personnel which is much more than combined forces of our predecessors Italian Navy and Republic of China (Taiwan).
It comprises sixteen submarines, one amphibious assault boat, six landing vessels, eight landing crafts, and 12 destroyers, 13 frogs, 16 corvettes, 11 mine anti-patrol vessels, and 70 fighter aircraft.
South Korea needs a powerful military to protect itself from its neighbor’s sea-based attacks with a threat of Northern Korea always on the horizon.
Thankfully, since the Korean War, the South Korean economy has slowly been increasing, allowing the government to use modern military equipment with a large amount of money.
Based on what is happening regarding North Korea today, you can expect that the South Korean government will further boost the nation’s coastal defenses.
The ROK Navy is composed of the Marine Corps of the Republic of Korea, which was established in 1945, the ROK Navy is one of the oldest branches of South Korean military.
Although South Korean Marine was a little established many decades ago, it has recently become a competent ocean force from a maritime army.

7.India (Indian Navy)

  • 1 Aircraft carrier.
  • 1 Amphibious attack ships.
  • 14 Assault submarines.
  • 8 Anti mines
  • 14 Frigates.
  • 19 landing vessels.

There is about 67,000 personnel are employed in the Indian Navy. Defense wise, India is the second-strongest navy in Asia.
India is slowly but surely upgrading the resources in its defense to become a true sea power to balance its Chinese neighbor.
INS Vikramaditya aircraft carrier is the flagship of the Indian Navy.
In terms of the number of aircraft carrying capacity, this carrier is moderate.
Cochin Shipyard (State-owned company) built the first homemade aircraft carrier INS Vikrant that was commissioned in 2013 and is more capable than its foreign-made predecessor.
It has increased India’s power projection capacity dramatically though the Indian Ocean.
11 destroyers are operating at the Navy, including three destroyers of the Kolkata class.
Some of them are 3 Delhi class and 5 older destroyers in the Rajput class with 13 operational frigates.
Their Navy had crafted many of them in modern technology, including three Shivalik and six Talwar missile guided frigates.
There is also a single frigate of the Godavari class, 3 older Brahmaputra classes and 20 corvettes intended to protect coastal Waters.
A single ballistic missile class submarine is operated by the Indian Navy, while the second class ship will be commissioned shortly.
These submarines with nuclear power have been developed and incorporated with high secrecy.
There is one submarine for a nuclear attack. The lead boat has been launched, two more boats will soon become operational and three more ships will be constructed.
INS Vishal is an aircraft carrier planned for the construction of Cochin Shipyard by the Indian Navy, also known as the Indigenous Aircraft Carrier 2.
They design it to be India’s second aircraft carrier after INS Vikrant and India’s first supercarrier.
The Indian Navy has been quickly modernized to upgrade its outdated facilities, often seen as part of India to develop the security in coastal Waters and strengthen its influence in the Indian Ocean.

6.France (French Navy)

The list also comprises various supporting and assisting ships, including training ships, tugboats, and refueling vessels.
France is also one of the 10 top nuclear weapons countries in the world, so it is not surprising that there is such a considerable force on the coastline.
They defined its role as intelligence preserving, public protection, crisis prevention, and the invasion of a threat to French vital interest.
The Marine Nationale comprises four branches.

  • Force D’Action Navale
  • Forces Sous-marines
  • Aeronavale
  • Fusiliers marine.

Among them is French Navy flagship Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier, which is only nuclear-powered aircraft carrier that has been constructed outside of the USA. 
French navy also operates 4 guided frigates of the Aquitaine Class while new ships are being constructed of this type. 
These new frigates are shortly to replace destroyers class Cassard and class Georges Leygues with frigates of class Aquitaine. 

5.United Kingdom (Royal Navy)

The British Navy is officially known as the Royal Navy. The Royal Navy was the most powerful navy in the world from the mid-18th century to the early 20th century.
It was an unrivaled influence and played a major role in the development of the British Empire.
The United States Navy only surpassed it when the Second World War occurred.
Now, the Royal Navy mostly focuses on expeditionary activities.
Currently, Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carrier is in commission expect while in the next couple of years.
British carriers are much larger than American aircraft carriers and somewhat bigger than Russian and Chinese carriers.
Six Daring anti-air fighting destroyers are owned by the British Navy.
Such vessels patrol wide areas and provide the fleet with air defense.
In contrast to the Daring class destroyers, thirteen duke frigates were mostly for warfare against submarines.
There is a well-respected, Royal Marine Commando Brigade of 7700 personnel in the Royal Navy.
The Royal Marines is the European Union’s most powerful naval infantry force (Second in the world after US marines).
There are 2 landing ships in class Albion and 3 logistic landing vessels in class Bay.
Three nuclear-powered submarines are operating in the Astute class. There are four ships of this class constructed.
There are also 3 nuclear-powered attacking Trafalgar-class active warships that will slowly retire in the coming years.
They also maintain 4 Vanguard ballistic missile submarines at the Royal Navy.
Each of these ships may carry a maximum of 192 nuclear warheads.
This power is enough for whole countries to be wiped out.
The fleet contains one aircraft carrier, three ballistic missile submarines, six nuclear power submarines, three amphibious vessels, six destroyers, 13 frigates, three offshore patrols, 13 minehunters, 18 fast patrol boats.
The Royal Navy also uses an HMS Bristol destroyer type 82 and an HMS Victory ship of the line.

4.Japan (Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force)

top 10 navy in the world
  • 2 Amphibious attack ships.
  • 18,Assault submarines.
  • 29 Anti mines
  • 40 Frigates.

The Japan Self-Defense Maritime Force comprises 17 warships, 26 destroyers, 10 frigates, 4 air defense destroyers, 6 corvettes, 3 landing ships, two landing crafts, 25 counter-attack vessels, six patrol ships, and eight training boats.
Japan recently modernized its marine facilities, just like South Korea, to defend itself from North Korea’s threat.
Nonetheless, the Japanese government finds nuclear weapons to a dissuasive for North Korea.
The Japan Sea Forces is a Japanese self-defense military unit, which is responsible for Japan’s coastal defenses.
Under US supervision, they established the Japanese naval forces after the imperial Japanese navy breakup after the Second World War.
Japan Maritime supervision,-Defense Force (JMSDF) is a Japanese navy of 50,800 personnel, 150 ships, and almost 346 aircraft.
As a part of the Japanese constitution, the naval self-defense force is legally limited to military doctrine.
It operates state-of-the-art warships and submarines. In contrast, they keep the Japanese fleet ready and highly efficient.
Therefore, while Japanese navies lose their numbers and tonnage to the Chinese fleet, Japanese warships are more modern and equipped with the latest guns.
The JMSDF has no nuclear weapons, though.
Around 20 submarines belong to Japan’s navy.
As far as Japan does not use nuclear warships, it has built up diesel submarines that have improved strength and offensive capabilities.
Yet Japan does not have any underwater ballistic missiles or strategic ballistic missiles.
Naval aircraft in Japan comprises about 70 Lockheed P-3C Orions and a dozen Kawasaki Navy P-1s.

3.Russia (Russian Navy)

best navy in the world

  • 4 Missile submarine

Russian Federation has one of the best navies in the world, officially established in 1992 following the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
It comprises about 148,000 staff, which almost triples the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force’s active staff.
This comprises over 300 operational vessels and 300 boats.
Russia’s main naval fleet includes 1 cargo carrier, 1 battlecruiser, 3 cruisers, 13 destroyers, 8 frigates, 78 corvettes, 17 submerged SSNs, 22 submarines for the attack of SSK, 13 submarines for ballistic weapons, 7 submarines of cruise-missiles, 3 submarines for special purposed purposes.
While Russia is better known for its strong ground forces, the Russian navy must soon remind all that Russia is well prepared for sea skirmishes.
The Russian navy inherited the fleet from the Soviet navy after the fall of the Soviet Union.
The Russian fleet has decreased substantially since the early 1990s with the end of the Cold War and the resulting funding problems.
Cold War remnants are the bulk of its ships. In the last two decades, because of its small funding, the Russian army has faced problems maintaining its main troops.
A single battle-cruiser, but still fighting to maintain this huge warship, is used by the Russian navy.
Also, 3 smaller missile Slava cruisers offer great anti-ship, anti-aircraft and anti-submarine capabilities.
The Russian Marine loses the warship number and tonnage on paper to the Chinese navy.
The Russian navy, however, has several proven ballistic missile submarines, which have been extremely deadly.
With about 148,000 staff, various warships and submarines, it remains a formidable force.

2.China (People’s Liberation Army Navy)

strongest navy in the world
  • 2 Amphibious attack ships.
  • 52 Assault submarines.
  • 27 Anti mines
  • 51 Frigates.
  • 25 landing vessels.
  • 26 destroyers.
  • 50 Patrol vessels
  • 6 missile submarines.

Since the 1990s, China’s navy has grown its arsenal and is building new warships and submarines in rapid growth.
The Chinese Army is officially called the People’s Liberation Army and its strength is about 255,000.
Today it is in terms of tonnage the second largest fleet after the US Navy, In fact, it has the largest number of powerful combatants.
There is a Chinese navy owned by A single Liaoning aircraft carrier in 2018. They use mainly as a training ship.
A similar carrier is being designed and is scheduled to become operational in 2019-2020.
Some newer warships are not as capable as their western or Russian counterparts.
On the other hand, the construction of new advanced warships is rapid.
However, about 5-6 guidance missile cruisers of type 055 are about to be completed and are expected to operate in 2020.
The Navy of the People’s Liberation Army has quickly become one of the world’s most powerful maritime forces.

1.United States (United States Navy)

top 10 navy in the world
  • 10 Aircraft carrier, 2 in reserve, 3 underconstruction.
  • 10 Amphibious attack ships.
  • 53 Assault submarines.
  • 14 Anti mines
  • 30 Frigates.
  • 21 landing vessels.
  • 60 destroyers.
  • 22 cruisers.
  • 2 corvette.
  • 100 Patrol vessels
  • 18 missile submarines.

For 100 years, the US Navy is the most powerful navy in the world.
The US Navy shifted from a broad war with the Soviet Union to regional conflict in the early 1990s following the Cold War.
For lower funding and lack of adequate threat currently, but mainly to the cost of smaller ships, US fleets continue to decline instead of major surface soldiers and the most deadly submarines.
In the early 20th century, the US took over the British empire in terms of naval strength.
Big thanks to one of our best presidents Theodore Roosevelt, who employed Big Stick ideology.
The US Navy runs 11 large carriers with aircraft used to display its sheer power.
These include one carrier in the Ford-class and 10 carriers in the Nimitz and Revised Nimitz class.
Each carrier is made up of 70-80 aircraft. It’s a larger and stronger force than many nations’ total air force.
Each of these warships carries approximately 1700-2000 Marines and blinded vehicles and delivers tilt rotors, helicopters, and hovercraft to shore.
Such combat boats are heavier than most carriers.
Such submarines also patrol zones in waters near the United States or far away from the seas, making effective anti-submarine efforts nearly unlikely.
Nearly 3,700 planes serve the US Navy. Most of these are multi-role fighters of the F/A-18 family and other aircraft associated with them, based on carrier aircraft.
Technically speaking, the USS Pueblo is still in service, the scientific study vessel.
But North Korea, which attacked and captured the ship for supposed entry into North Korean territory in 1968, is currently being held.
And in the foreseeable future, it will probably remain at the top, based on how much the US government spends on military equipment.

Above is the list of the top 10 navy in the world​.
In this article, the navy’s rating is only determined on the sheer scale of its ship and the number, and it is not answered by any nation’s operational capacity in any way.

The speed of a train is only limited by technology, unlike their road counterparts; Trains are much safer & comfortable to travel.
With the latest invention of Maglev trains, we only expect it to improve further.
Recently, Japan tested its fastest ALPHA-X train in 2016 and is expected to start its operation from 2046.
These are 10 most fastest train in the world:

10. Alstom Euroduplex

Top 10 fastest train in the world in 2019

French railway’s company SNCF operates the train and is designed & manufactured by the Alstom railway company.
This train is the third series of high-speed duplex TGV trains.

10 Famous Leonardo da Vinci Paintings & Drawings

famous Leonardo Da Vinci Paintings

In this article we will cover most famous Leonardo da Vinci’s Paintings & Artwork.
Human history is filled with many spectacular artists like
Leonardo’s Mona Lisa and The Last Supper have distinctively held positions as the most famous and religious paintings of all time, most reproduced and copied.
In 1472 Leonardo entered the Florence Painting Guild and set up his own workshop. Leonardo, as a painter, successfully completed six artworks in Milan in 17 years.
These are Top 10 most famous Leonardo da Vinci Paintings:

10. St. Jerome

Leonardo Da Vinci Paintings

This painting of the genius is incomplete.
After plucking the thorn from Lion’s paw’s, the painting reflects Saint Jerome.
What is remarkable is that, as customary, Leonardo did not give him a beard.
In 1480, he had started painting but due to some unknown reasons, he had to stop his masterpiece.
Specialty of this painting:
At the end of his life, the picture shows St. Jerome, a hermit in the woods, alone except for his lion companion–a prevalent theme of the Renaissance.
Yet, alone, he represents the penitent saint in a time of private deep slumber in a deeply touching, intimate portrayal. As Jerome looks on his crucifix, his religious fight is over.

9. Portrait of Ginevra Benci

famous Leonardo Da Vinci Paintings

The portrait of Ginevra de Benci is the only publicly displayed painting by Leonardo housed at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.
It is one of Leonardo’s earliest works, completed in his early twenties, showing some unusual painting techniques he used in his life.
It is one of the first recognized paintings of Italian art for three-quarters view. In about 1474, Vinci created this & is often regarded as one of the most famous Leonardo da Vinci Paintings.
Specialty of this painting:
A palm of laurel surrounds the background of the picture the sprig of juniper, and each one of the flowers is surrounded by a phrase containing “Beauty adorns virtue.”
The truncated appearance of the opposing side suggests that the painting was cut down, possibly due to water or fire damage.

8. Lady with an Ermine

leonardo da vinci drawings

It is a painting from around 1489-1490 by Leonardo da Vinci.
Many art historians have identified the young lady of with Ermine as Cecilia Gallerani, Leonardo’s patron’s mistress, Ludovico Sforza, the Duke of Milan.
Specialty of this painting:
Although Leonardo’s knowledge of anatomy in this is painting is over proved and his capability to portray a character in posture and expression, particularly the bleak backdrop.
In its guileless characteristics, attentive eyes and a gentle touch, the girl depicts the youth and dynamic nature of the ermine.
Her slim hand shows the complex bones structure under the skin, as the skull underneath the fur shows the head of the ermine.

7. Anatomical studies

famous Leonardo Da Vinci Paintings

Leonardo in his last days was more isolated than he ever was, he used to buy bodies from local hearse centre.
He used to dissect he bodies and do extensive analysis, examine the moment and structure of various human cells. 
Specialty of these sketchworks:
Martin Clayton, the Senior Curator of the Royal Collection, is explored Leonardo’s remarkably accurate anatomical imageries, which remained hidden from the world almost 400 years after Da Vinci died.
Perhaps his most popular anatomical painting was a 100-year-old guy who said he had only hours before his death had been in perfect health.
When Leonardo dissected him to look “the cause of such a sweet death” and discovered cirrhosis in the liver and blockage of an artery in the heart describing the first-ever coronary tissue in the world.
Many argue that Leonardo had way more artworks & drawings than we had discovered yet.

6. The Virgin of the Rocks

This painting portrays the apocryphal legend that the adolescent John the Baptist met Jesus from Egypt in the desert. The artwork was developed between 1483 and 1486.
Specialty of this painting:
The first painting shows how the high Renaissance was carried on by Leonardo.
Early pictures from that era commonly portrayed figures in a fixed, stiff and distinct shape.
In a mysterious rocky landscape, a young Mary is sitting down on the floor, not on a stool.
Her body is moving — it feels like she tilts her head protecting to the baby John, who is kneeling to the left in his worship, and she feels as if she is moving him to the Christ Child to the right.
Jesus blesses John, seen from behind in a complicated position, points towards John and looks at the viewer.

5. Self Portrait

famous Leonardo Da Vinci Paintings

At around 60 years of age, Leonardo is commonly thought to have drawn the self-portrait in red chalk.
The red chalk of an ancient guy with lengthy wavy hair and beards has long been considered as a self-portrait and is so represented that it describes how the majority believe about the appearance of Leonardo.

4. Vitruvian Man

leonardo da vinci drawings

Vitruvian Man is one of Leonardo’s many notes he held on to during his aging years.
It comes followed by remarks in the perfect human proportions handed down in a book on 1st century BC by the Roman painter Vitruvius.
Specialty of this sketchwork:
The sketch shows the hypothesis that the perfect person can combine two irreconcilable forms into a circle and a square.
Leonardo solved the idea by drawing a man in two superimposed positions — one in a carriage with his arms stretched forth, and another in a circle with his feet and arms stretched out.
The work not only shows Leonardo’s efforts to comprehend significant documents but also his willingness to broaden them.
His illustrations subsequently became most iconic, partially because of his mathematical, philosophical and artistic combinations, which appear to have been a fitting sign of the Renaissance.

3. Salvator Mundi

famous Leonardo Da Vinci Paintings

Many experts noted that it represented the image of Jesus.
The rigid position, which was so distinctive from the typical sweeping postures of the master of the Renaissance.
A non-convincing image of the crystal world, which would have mirrored, if true, a twisted image of its owner, which Leonardo would have heard about.
The auctioneer further affirmed that conservators had confirmed that Leonardo made the painting of the same material that Leonardo, particularly ultramarine blue, often reserved for the rich, was a very costly, high-quality pigment.
So, it was concluded it was some rich person who hired Leonardo to make his painting.

2. Last Supper

Leonardo Da Vinci Paintings

Ludovico Sforza, the Duke of Milan and the Patron of Leonardo during his first stay in Milan, commissioned Last Supper. 
It is one of the most famous works in the world.
Specialty of this painting:
Leonardo, who was fascinated by how the personality of a man can be revealed in posture, speech, and gesture, showed a distinctive response.
The Apostles’ positions are rising, falling, extending themselves and intertwining as they seem to shout, shout, grieve and discussion around Jesus.
The work was soon disintegrated after Leonardo completed it, because of the experimental paint technique in which he employed tempera or öil paint on two preparatory stages.
But observers can still see this as a complex study of diverse human emotions, which can be disclosed in a clear narrative.

1.Mona lisa

This is the only thing that comes into your mind when you hear “a masterpiece”.
Mona Lisa is the most famous painting in the world all the time.
Every day, the Mona Lisa attracts thousands of visitors to Louvre Museum, many of whom are compelled by the mysterious gaze of the sitter and the enigmatic smile.
Specialty of this painting:
A youthful woman’s normal image modestly clothed in a slender, dim-colored veil and no jewelry could also confuse her spectators, who could ask about the hell.
The simplicity of the painting behind Leonardo is realistic. The subject’s gently shaped features show Leonardo’s method used for modeling subtle light and shadow gradations rather than lines.
Leonardo’s deliberate patience in recreating his observations is demonstrated by his delicately painted veil, beautifully crafted coats and the thorough handling of folded fabric.
The confusing expression of the woman only increases her realism.
Her smile may engage or mocking–viewers can’t find it out, because she is a sophisticated figure like a human being that simultaneously represents counter-characteristics.

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) is regarded as one of the most important and leading painters of all times.
His works of art, distinguished by exceptional vibrant but harmonious composition and subtle shadowing techniques, had a huge impact on the preceding generations of artists.
There are many other Leonardo’s interesting facts that he was exceptionally talented as an engineer, Biologist, architect, astronomer, geologist, etc.

The complete area enclosed by astronomical 77,600 hectares in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, leaving all the other airports on this list look like a Lego set in contrast.
The airport is bigger than Bahrain’s full nation, which is crazy.
But here’s the fun fact: Airport facilities use only 3,675 hectares of that space.
Yep, it uses only less than 5% of the available space. If we were going with the airport’s actual size, it would have been the smallest on this list.
King Fahd International Airport is the newest airport on the list–it opened in November 1999 just before the end of 20th century.
In terms of passenger traffic, it is also the least busy, barely reaching past 10 million travelers served annually.
So we might say that the world’s biggest airport is the most inefficient as well.

Hope you got all the airports around, be sure to remember their names as next time you travel there & please don’t get lost.

10 Blue Whale Facts which will Astonish you

Blue whale facts

Most interesting Blue whale facts is that they are one-of-kind creatures to ever exist.
Blue Whale is the biggest animal in the world. There is no single animal on Earth that has been recognized as being larger than a Blue Whale.
In fact, they’re the biggest to ever live. That means the biggest dinosaurs didn’t match the size of a Blue Whale.
Blue Whales are so big that their heart is as big as a car like mini cooper and their tongue alone can weigh more than a fully grown elephant!
Below is the list of 10 facts about Blue Whales:

10. Hippos are closest living relative to whales

Blue whale facts

Fossil study of the long-extinct animals which lived on this planet million years ago confirms that cetaceans (Ocean mammals) are the closest living cousins of the Hippopotamus.
The analysis of their fossils especially their teeth led the Paleontologists to conclude both whales and hippo came from a forefather of anthracothere who migrated from Asia to Africa about 35 million years ago.
It probably swam there as Africa was then an island surrounded by water.
All this means that the modern hippo has evolved in Africa independently and is a truly native animal on the continent.

09. Blue whales don't sleep like us

information about whales

It is one of the interesting Blue whale facts that like most sea mammals, they don’t sleep like us (terrestrial mammals).
If a blue whale sleeps as other mammals do, they will drown in the water deeply & may die due for suffocation.
Evolved with an involuntary respiratory system, only half part of their brain is closed down during sleep.
The other part remains ready for controlling the blowhole and starting each breath.
They stay silently in a flat place when the whales sit or float slowly next to another whale. It is renowned that sperm whales rest vertically.

08. Whale "vomit" is used in perfumes & is very expensive

Blue whale facts

A Blue Whale’s diet comprises krills (Shrimp-like creatures) and can eat up to 40 million krills in a single day.
But just like any warm-blooded mammal it sometimes vomits.
Ambergris is marine excrement produced from the abdomen of whales that is thought to help digestion.
Discharged from the deep inner water away from the coast, it gets soft and rancid when vomited.
Years of saltwater and wind exposure turn it into something like a rock with a waxy texture and a pleasant smell.
A chunk of ambergris weighing 7 pounds can amount to more than $50,000.
It is extremely valued not only because it is scarce, but also because it is difficult to discover an artificial replacement for it as a perfume base.

07. All Marine mammals have nose like us (sort-of)

Blue whale facts

Blue Whales, like Fish, can not get oxygen from water to breathe.
A blowhole is on top of their bodies and is used when swimming to the surface to inhale in a large amount of air & exhale (There is a misconception that Whales exhale water, Its actually warmer exhaled air, this warmness condenses the water. Hence, giving that water fountain look).
A Blue Whale, unlike other species, has two rather than one blowholes.
They can maintain their breath submerged for up to 35 minutes.
Blue Whales have lungs that they use to breathe, the blowhole above his heart is the nostril.
The nostril is so big that a human baby can crawl through it.

06. Blue Whale milk's texture is like a toothpaste.

Whales generate milk as all mammals do to feed their babies.
It is one of the unusual information about whales that the mother provides her baby milk by enabling it to nurse or squirt to its mouth from the nipple.
The level of 35 percent-50 percent fat in the milk makes it as thick as a toothpaste. This texture allows it to pass without dissolving up with water.
A baby Blue Whale needs around 300 liters of milk every day, that’s the rationing amount of milk for an average family for the entire year.

05. Blue Whales' life expectancy is more than 80-90 years in the wild.

Blue whales are animals like humans recognized to inhibit the ocean with an approximate lifetime of 80–90 years.
It is estimated that the oldest recorded blue whale will live up to 110 years!
A lot of variables can determine how long a blue whale is likely to survive when it gets to maturity.
Some of these variables include human hunting, food production shortages and nutrition safety, weather change, air and noise pollution, emotional and physical health such as injuries are some factors that influence their age.

04. Blue whales are not actually blue

facts about the blue whale

Yes, Blue Whale is not blue colored, but they appear blue. How can that be?
Well, when viewed underwater, they appear solid blue.
Their actual color is mottled gray color and we can see it when they are taken out of water.
The blue color, however, is only on the upper side of their massive body.
A blue whale’s underbelly has a yellowish hue color. This hue, however, is mainly because of millions of microbes living on their skin.

03. Their voice is really very loud

Blue whale facts

Not only are the Blue Whales the world’s largest animals, but they are also among the loudest in the world. 
At 140 decibels, a jet engine sound can record, a blue whale’s call reaches upto 188 decibals.
They usually produce moans, groans, and pulses, and they can hear each other easily from a distance of 1,000 miles if conditions are right.
That means they’re not only very loud, but their hearing sense is also very powerful!
Using sounds & songs (yes), they usually communicate with each other. 
Yet, using their vocalizations and their hearing abilities to navigate through the ocean depths where light can not reach. The system is called navigation through echolocation.

02. Blue whales can increase their speed upto 20 mph

information about whales

Blue whale habitat is worldwide, but they follow certain seasonal patterns, they enjoy summers feeding in polar regions and making a long trip back to the Equator as winter comes along.
This seasonal migration is because krills move towards warmer waters as winter arrives
Traveling this long-distance with their massive body is not an easy task.
Their normal cruising speed is around 5 mph, but they can increase their speed and swim at a speed of 20 miles per hour, though, if they get agitated somehow.

01. Endangered species

Blue whale facts

We, humans, are insignificant and for our pure appeasement, we can ruin anything.
By the first half of the 20th century, Blue Whales were almost on the brink of extinction because we killed them at large scale.
About 360,000 of these beautiful creatures were killed by us.
Why have they been slaughtered? Just because of whale oil.
This whale oil as valuable and have many medicinal characteristics.
In 1996, The International Whaling Commission stepped forward to protect these creatures.
As of today, here are only 4,500 (or less) Blue Whales remaining on this whole planet.
Blue Whales are endangered not just because of hunting there are various reasons like,
Increasing ocean pollution because of human behavior threatens their existence.
They also die for oil spills (from oil tankers), changes in environmental conditions (which is again mainly caused by human activity), high ocean traffic, as they often collide with big ships and end up dead.

Of natural food-chain, Blue Whales are very important for the balance of the oceanic ecosystem & have equal rights as we humans do to live on this planet.
Apart from eco-system these humble giants a living proof the wonders nature can create which is also important for making sure our future generation see these beautiful creations.
These were some of unique Blue Whale facts & if you really want them to survive in future share this post on your social-media & make sure your friends know about information.
Create awareness & compassion and save these helpless animals.

Top 10 Smallest Countries in the World

Here, if you are planning for next international trip but want to experience something different.
No worries, we have the smallest nations in the world, which are also some best tourist destinations around.
We also call these types of countries microstates
Most of these nations have a region of less than 400 square kilometers, mostly present in Europe, the Caribbean, and the Pacific. 
These small countries are also among the wealthiest, most distant, and most fascinating locations, with their own laws and culture. 
Let’s see the Top 10 smallest nations in the world:

10.Malta-316 km²

Location:Central Mediterranean sea
Population:~460,000

Malta is an island in Europe. It is located around the center of the Mediterranean sea.
The capital of Malta is Valletta. Around 460,000 people live in Malta and it is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. 
Because of this, it has many cities and towns that grew close to each other.
Another famous tourist destination, for its sunny climate, attractive coasts, rich culture, and lively nightlife, people from all over the globe travel to Malta.
Made up of just 316 kmfor all three islands, Malta is the 10th smallest country in the world by area.

09.Maldives - 300 km²

Location:Indian ocean​
Population:~436,000​

The Maldives, a famous Indian Ocean tourism destination, is Asia’s smallest country by area and population.
The Maldives has over 1,192 coral reefs, distributed over 90,000 square kilometers, rendering it one of the most dispersed nations in the world.
Today, owing to its renowned white sand coasts and crystal blue waters, the Maldives has a flourishing tourism economy.
Many Maldives islands seem to be only 1.5 meters above average sea level.
This low altitude on the ground makes the Maldives the world’s lowest elevation level nation.
Unfortunately, owing to global warming, the increase in sea level is about to erode many islands of the Maldives soon.

08. Saint Kitts and Nevis - 261 km²

Location:Caribbean sea
Population:~55,338

These two tiny Caribbean islands were some of the first islands that Europeans inhabited. 
Combined, they occupy most of 261 square kilometers, making Saint Kitts and Nevis the eighth-smallest nation in the world.
Its economy depends on tourism, farming, and small-scale manufacturing.
Because of the plenty of aquatic life, the islands also provide great diving places. 
Today the country has around 55,338 citizens. We know both islands for their intact coasts, rain forests, and pleasant climate.

Nauru is the world’s smallest island country with an area of 21 km².
Nauru is also the world’s second least populated country, with only 13,650 residents.
It’s a big island with plenty of phosphate mineral resources.
From 1960 to 1970, the extraction of this valuable resource became the country’s primary source of revenue.
For that Nauru GDP wise as a country became rich overnight but, unfortunately as soon as the phosphate started depleting the country began its decline.
It could still become economically stable by promoting tourism.
As tropical colorful coral reefs surround it, this island nation is renowned for white sandy shores.
