In cetology,a blowhole is the hole at the top of a Cetacean's head through which the animal breathes air.
It is homologous with the nostril of other mammals.
As whales reach the water surface to breathe, they will forcefully expel air through the blowhole.

Not only is air expelled, but so are mucus and carbon dioxide from the animal's metabolism, which have been stored in the whale while diving.
The exhalation is released into the comparably lower-pressure, colder atmosphere, and any water vapor condenses.

This spray, known as the blow, is often visible from far away as a white splash, which can also be caused by water resting on top of the blowhole.
Air sacs just below the blowhole allow whales to produce sounds for communication and (for those species capable of it) echolocation.

These air sacs are filled with air, which is then released again to produce sound in a similar fashion to releasing air from a balloon.

I love small drawings! - I see the bigger! So I observe the small - I draw on an infinite hand-cutted paper size then I'll make a paper box - ICONBOX - so it can fit exactly the artwork. When YOU open an ICONBOX you discover it is a tryptic - as a Middle-Age painting on wood or a domestic roman God ‘Lares’. ICONBOX is my way to create a kind of ritual between ART and OWNER. So the drawing's owner become a Fantastico’s guardian. Read Less
