Blue whales are mammals in the order Cetacea, suborder Mysticeti, family Balaenopteridae, genus Balaenoptera. The family Balaenopteridae is commonly referred to as rorquals, a Norwegian term meaning "furrowed whale," a reference to the grooves baleen whales display on their ventral side. The grooves are actually folded skin, which expands when the rorquals take in massive amounts of water while feeding. Blue whales are most closely related to humpback whales and gray whales according to DNA sequencing analysis.
