Whale Comedy Is The Best Comedy
Blue whales are quite a remarkable sight. The largest-known mammal, their heads alone are typically bigger than your average family sedan. Their tongues weigh in around the same as your average elephant. These are absolutely huge creatures. And they can be, thanks to their ocean home.
You'd think that as big as they are, it would be easy to spot them. After all, where could they possibly hide? But they're not nearly as common to see in the wild as orcas, sperm whales, gray whales, or smaller marine mammals like dolphins. One reason is that all the previously mentioned animals are predators who need to come to the surface for other reasons, like bubble-feeding. The blue whales are gentle giants that use a filtration system to feast on tiny crustaceans.
The scientist in this video got more than he expected with this comedian of a blue whale, who clearly waited until just the right moment to accomplish the world's largest videobomb.
