The Blue Whale’s diet is only krill, this species consumes more than 400 kilograms of krill a day. Being the biggest animal on earth you would think it would eat something quite big, but no. Krill is only 1-2 cms long although the biggest species of krill is 11cms.

You would usually think that the Blue Whale has no predators, but you're wrong. The Blue Whales predators are, sharks, orca and humans. While its awful that sharks and orcas kill them, we are harpooning them.

As humans, we have a threatening impact on Blue Whales. We have became selfish and have started harpooning them for whale oil. This plays a big part in increasing their chance of becoming extinct
