Grey whale (Eschrichtius robustus). 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 by swallowing sediment from the sea floor and then pressing its tongue against baleen plates in its mouth, pushing the water out and trapping crustaceans and worms. Photographed off Baja California, Mexico.
