There’s no better feeling than seeing animals in their natural habitat.

Each and every animal on earth has as much right to be here as you and me. Animals are pure. For some reasons not everyone is a fan of animals, however they’re the best thing that has ever happened to humanity. Animals make us human.

If you’re a fan of the wildlife, here are top 5 locations to experience it in the best possible way:

Blue Whales in Sri Lanka

Blue whales are the biggest animals that have ever lived on our planet. Their tongues alone can weigh as much as an elephant, and their hearts weight as much as a car. If you ever need an extra reason to go and visit Sri Lanka, then seeing blue whales is definitely one of the reasons. Sri Lanka is perfectly located to support great numbers of blue whale. Blue whales are most likely to be seen between February and mid March. The reason why this is the best time to see blue whales in Sri Lanka is thanks to the tiny critter called krill, which blue whales thrive as they migrate around the world’s oceans. This is pretty much all they eat.
