Though both whales are rorqual whales, the Sei whale grows to 60 feet (18 m) and 100,000 pounds (45,000 kg) and prefers colder waters of subpolar regions unlike its close cousin and doppelganger, the Bryde’s whale. Though looking very much like the Sei whale, the Bryde’s whale is smaller and prefers warmer waters. The Bryde’s whale reaches a maximum of approximately 55 feet (16.5 m) and 90,000 pounds (40,000 kg).
