Blue Whale (Balaenoptera musculus) feeding in midnight sun, Svalbard

Year: 2010
From collection: Arctic Biodiversity
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The largest animal on the Earth is the Blue Whale. Their hearts can weigh as much as a car and yet they eat only krill, a tiny shrimp-like animal, which they filter out from gulps of water through plates of tough baleen.
