Grey whales can be identified partly by the many barnacles growing on their heads. Baby blue whales drink an average of 60 gallons of mother's milk each day. One of the strangest whales is the narwhal. The male has an 8-foot bony spiral of tusk jutting from the left side of its head. DO YOU KNOW - Which is the largest kind of whale?

Kim Perham had said an ultrasound test at Portsmouth (N.H.) Hospital on Feb. 28 had shown she was pregnant with two boys and four girls. Her husband, Richard Perham, had had a vasectomy several months earlier. On Wednesday, Perham said his wife had been admitted for observation to an institution he declined to name. She is "very confused right now" and is under psychiatric care, he told Foster's Daily Democrat of Cover, N.H. Perham's father, Donald Perham of Rye, N.H., told the newspaper his daughter-in-law had an ultrasound test performed recently to determine whether she was pregnant, but he said she "has not been pregnant and is not pregnant now." Mrs. Perham's pregnancy came under question Tuesday when doctors disputed key parts of her story.Doctors at the hospital said U.S. government estimates of the consumption of illegal drugs, and the prices they bring, suggest these figures: $4 billion a year for heroin, $18 billion for cocaine, and $44 billion for marijuana, says National Geographic. idea" that she wasn't pregnant and that apparently no one else knew either. She had gone alone to all her doctor's appointments. An unidentified spokesman at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, where Mrs. Perham had said she expected to deliver the sextuplets by Caesarean section on July 28, told the Boston Globe the hospital had no record of her being transferred to the hospital. they had no record of an ultrasound test given Mrs. Perham, 27, who is the mother of 2-year-old twins. Dr. William Cusack of Dover, who the Perhams said was her obstetrician, said Wednesday he had seen Mrs. Perham once in recent months, had not given her a pregnancy test, and that she was not under his care. Richard and Donald Perham said they did not know what prompted Mrs. Perham's story because she had no history of such incidents. Mrs. Perham's story received wide distribution, and she appeared on two national TV news shows. A milk company offered her family a one year's free supply.
