The Gray whale (Eschrichtius robustus) was an aquaticmammalindigenous to Earth. It was a cetaceanspecies. Like its name suggested, it had a distinct gray coloration, though that color was broken by white streaks. As of 1986, grey whales lived near the west coast of North America, and parts of the eastern coasts of Asia.
This range was a snapshot from the age of whaling: the gray whale once had a much wider range, and according to some scientists might currently be re-colonizing that range.
