How is it possible for a whale to breastfeed her baby in the middle of the ocean, yet there is no direct contact between the two? The answer ɩіeѕ in the composition of the milk.
You see, when this young whale is ready to feed, the mother releases her milk directly into the water while her child is near, but because whale milk has such a high-fat content, it does not dissolve in the water. Instead this thick and sticky form of milk just kind of sits there for the baby to feed on.
