Morning Start: Whales are mammals so they produce…

Your morning start for Monday, May 2

Monday again already? Monday hitting everyone like…

Good morning everyone! Let’s get your day, week, and month started with the morning start!

Fun Fact: Here’s something that should be common knowledge but you feel dumb when you realize it, I sure did: Whales are mammals, which mean they produce milk, just like every other mammal. This includes other animals like seals, wallabies, rhinos, and even pigeons. Also, humans can’t have whale’s milk because it can be up to 50 per cent fat.
