    Hi there,

    Going forward, please keep suggestions focused on a single idea per post. There are really interesting suggestions here, but they really belong in their own posts. Thanks for your contribution!

    Whales can be found in the Antarctic and arctic, or have you forgot that?!

    Being passive the whale should be able to attack by swinging it's tail or opening it's mouth to eat. So don't go in front of a whale

    Yeah, there are also Aerwhales in the Aether mod, so that would be a great addition to the skies.

    Like your idea.

    I think the whales could drop pieces of baleen when killed, and could randomly drop ambergris when swimming along. Both could be really valuable items: maybe baleen could be a block that mobs get stuck in, a little bit like spider's webs*; ambergris could be an ingredient for potions.

    * But if you get stuck in a whale's baleen, you can't move at all, but you can destroy it from inside.

    We love the whale idea.  My seven year old thinks the whale should be able to 'blow' water through its blowhole which you can ride on and get launched into the air.

    You can travel inside whales but they only go in a route no control of the route other than teraforming the ocean

    The orca should be neutral to players but hostile to every aquatic mob except pufferfish and axolotls

    I would add the feature that if one came up behind you, it would swallow you and a few seconds later, deposit you on a random shore of your world.  This would make the Mob something to lookout for.

    What if they could jump out of the water and slap their fins on the ocean, like whales do in real life? I am thinking maybe just blue whales found everywhere except frozen waters and orcas in the frozen water biomes. They would be huge as well.

    Loving this idea for whales. Having built many Blue whales in ocean environments. The largest recorded blue whale is 110ft. (33meters) they can be big but do not have to be that big. Passive mob no killing needed. Adds a great ambiance to deep and cold/warm oceans.

    Could have a playful nature to them. Rising to the surface when players get near them. Maybe blow a burst of water from blowhole. Slap side fins or tail fins. Otherwise peaceful in all other aspects. Other fish would be drawn to them 'for feeding' i.e remoras.

    Maybe add a new decor block like barnacles which can be mined from them with a hand or pickaxe or chop kelp as they slowly pass through a kelp strand.. Can break Blue ice in cold biomes as they breach the surface. Feed them a raw fish to hear them 'sing'.

    It also matches the thoughts of the developers to bring awareness to the plight of these graceful animals in the real world. Please add to this with other useful ideas. No killing of the whales though. I get the idea of Blubber and its uses but that is what cause the overkilling of this species in the first place

    Good god, do not add drops for whales.  Do some research, no one should promote whaling

     I love whales and always think the ocean in minecraft look so empty! But, I think the player should be punish to kill a whale!  Some bad omen or something...
