Humpback Lunge Sequence [PRINT]

Rorqual whales feed by lunging: surging from below, the whale opens its mouth seconds before arriving at a school of fish. A rush of water and prey floods into the mouth, expanding the accordion-like grooves of the throat. After engulfing the prey-laden water, the whale slows and over the next minute, slowly expels the water out of its throat through a sieve of baleen, before swallowing its prey.
