You don’t have to be Alan Davies in QI to know that they are top of the chart for a fair old list of animal facts, but for the record: blue whales are the biggest animals on Earth – and the biggest ever to have existed, so take that, dinosaurs.
If you happen to live in the Monterey Bay area of California, then blue whales aren’t just incredible feats of nature to read about – they’re your neighbors, as this amazing footage shows.
In the caption for the video, the Monterey Bay Whale Watch explain how they came to get the footage.
“We saw eight Blue’s all within a mile of each other this morning,” they wrote.
“Almost every one of them fluked up (showed their tale) while diving. We also encountered lunge feeding humpbacks in Carmel Bay as well as active Risso’s dolphins and a Mola Mola Sunfish.”
They shot it using drones, using the aerial cameras to capture the whales in all their glory.
“Monterey Bay is one of the best places to see blue whales when krill is abundant,” explained Nancy Black, a marine biologist at Monterey Bay Whale Watch.
