A Whale With No Teeth?
October 24, 2017
The largest mammal on earth, the Blue Whale (pictured here) has no teeth! Instead, they have 270-395 plates of baleen on either side of their jaw that look similar to long thin teeth. Baleen is similar to bristles and consists of the same substance found in human fingernails and hair. Cleaning his mouth looks like A LOT of work!
