Grey whale eye. Close-up of an eye of a grey whale (Eschrichtius robustus). Whales generally have moderately good eyesight, though their eyes are small relative to their body size. This whale is found in coastal waters, migrating with the seasons from Arctic waters to tropical equatorial waters. It can grow up to 15 metres in length and weigh 16 tonnes. It feeds on crustaceans and worms extracted from seabed sediment. Photographed off Baja California, Mexico.
