Fish vs Whale...... Do You Know The Difference?

What does today's post have to do with genealogy? Nothing and maybe everything. Your ancestors and mine (especially your Scandinavian ancestors of which I have none :-) ate whale blubber and whale meat and tons of cod fish. THEY knew the difference.

Whales have lungs, their tail goes up/down and is attached horizontally, and they give birth to live young and nurse them, and has smooth, rubber-like skin. 

Fish have gills, their tail is vertical and goes side-to-side, they lay eggs in water and swim away, and they have rough scales.

Now you know. Pop a quiz to your fishing grandsons!
