Fast Fact

Baleen whales are filter feeders. Baleen are plates of fingernail-like material that look like toothbrush bristles hanging from the top of the mouth. Baleen whales have no teeth. How does a baleen whale eat without teeth? As it opens its mouth to take in water and food, throat grooves under the jaw expand allowing in more prey. The mouth is closed and the water is strained or filtered out through the baleen with a push of the tongue. The food is trapped inside and swallowed whole.
