Blue Baleen

The blue whale is a marine mammal belonging to the suborder of baleen whales. Estimated at 30 metres or 98 feet and 180 metric tons or 200 short tons it is the largest known animal to have existed.
Baleen looks like a comb growing from the whale's top jaw. The whales strain their food from the sea with baleen. Baleen whales eat krill, tiny sea animals that look like shrimp.
