  • "What I can tell you is that waxy deposits, or plugs of wax, build up inside the ears of whales (just as waxy deposits build up inside your ears or mine), and the size of these deposits generally corresponds to the age of the whale (i.e., the larger the wax deposit, the older the whale, generally speaking). In fact, observing the size of the ear wax plug is about the only way to determine age in baleen whales (order Mysticeti), that do not have teeth."
