Open wide! Peer inside the mouth of a humpback whale. Worth noting are the large baleen plates which are used for filter-feeding. The whale sucks up large amounts of water into its mouth, and then pushes it back out through the baleen, trapping krill and fish inside for eating.   #wildlife #naturelovers #waterwednesday

Most cetaceans (whales and dolphins) have seven fused vertebrae. This is not the case for the beluga whale, whose vertebrae are not fused. This allows the whale to move its head about freely - up, down, and side to side - without having to rotate its body. This gives the creature an improved field of vision over most other marine mammals, which comes in handy when hunting for prey, or avoiding predators.

Kalia. Captivity kills. Don't buy a ticket to any marine park. Demand sea pen sanctuaries for those who cannot live wild and stop the captive breeding. Set them free when possible! Empty the tanks!
