Blue Whales feeding on pelagic crabs!

March 21, 2006 La Entrada at Isla Magdalena, Baja

Pelagic Crabs by the ton! These small (you could hold one in the palm of your hand) crustaceans literally stain the sea red here in the Pacifc Ocean. A Blue Whale mother and her calf respond to the dinner bell and spend the day sub-surface feeding on this delicacy. The largest animals on the planet feeding on some of the smallest!
