The blue whale is the largest living animal on earth.
The Average fully grown blue whales are around 100 – 120 tons, their tongue is around 3 to 5 tons, they are around 30 metres or 98 feet long.
Their heart is compared to the size of a small car.
The blue whale will consume as much as 4 – 6 tons of krill a day.

From 10/8/2011. A whale lunge feeding right next to the Kayak, plus some underwater footage. While the lunge feed was heart pounding excitement, I found that seeing one undewater was relaxing and peaceful. Was an awesome day!!! Shot with GoPro 1080 w/ mako flat lens.
