Can a Blue Whale chew food?
No, the Blue Whale does not chew its food. The Blue Whale, the largest animal that has ever existed on earth (to our knowledge), feeds on some of the smallest creatures in the ocean, like krill and some other zooplankton. It takes a large mouthful of water, including the creatures, and expels the water through “filters” called baleen. The water passes through and the whale swallows what is left whole. No chewing is involved. Use the link below to learn more.
