Foto Friday “The Whale’s Tale

Happy #FotoFriday

Hope you have had a fantastic week so far and you’ve been Thriving On

This week’s #FotoFriday I have chosen The Whale’s Tale, a really great shot I took of the fluke of a Blue Whale off the coast of San Onofre Sate Beach

Did you know that the Blue Whale is the largest animal to have ever existed! They can grow up to 98 feet and the maximum ever recorded weight was 173 tonnes. This means that it weighs as much as 24 elephants and can grow longer than 2 school buses.

Its jawbone is as big as a telephone pole, its heart is the size of an oil drum and it can consume up to two tons of food in a single day.
