Blue Whale

The Blue Whale is the largest animal that has ever lived on earth.










Far larger than an elephant!



Larger even than a brontosaurus.



The low frequency calls reach animals hundreds of miles away through deep ocean.






Biologists are just now discovering the purpose of these calls among Blue Whale families.



This species subsist on krill, a tiny shrimp living in huge colonies. This supports an animal of approximately 100 feet in length and weighing 100 or more tons.





Does anyone else have any information on the amazing diversity of life on earth?


Please send it in.
I crave knowledge of these unbelievable cetaceans!
