Figure 5

Inner blubber thickness map throughout entire body. Thickness of the inner layer (mean ± SD) at the dorsal, lateral, and ventral aspects of five body regions in (A) neonates (n = 8), (B) juveniles (n = 17), (C) adult males (n = 3), and (D) lactating females (n = 4). Multiple comparisons of inner blubber thicknesses at the dorsal, lateral, and ventral sites around the girth by Student-Newman-Keuls test: asterisk (*) indicates sites where the thickness was significantly different (P < 0.05) from corresponding sites.
