Are Whales Fish?

Answer

Whales are not fish but they are classified as water-mammals. This is due to the fact that they are warm-blooded, they breath air, give birth and they also have mammary glands. They survive in water because of the presence of a thick layer of insulated blubber that keeps them warm.
