Caption

Blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus). Close up of the dorsal surface of a blue whale, showing the tiny dorsal fin (centre left) and an attached remora (family Echeneidae, dark, centre). Remora fish use whales and other larger marine animals, such as sharks, for transport and protection. They also scavenge on food dropped by the host. The blue whale is the world's largest animal and can reach lengths of 27 metres and weigh 120 tonnes. Photographed in the Gulf of California.
