The blue whale is the largest animal to have ever lived on our planet, reaching lengths up to 110 feet and weighing upwards of 200 tons. A blue whale's heart is the size of a small car and its call, at about 180 decibels, is louder than the sound of a jet aircraft taking off. After being hunted to the brink of extinction in the early 1900s, these remarkable marine mammals remain endangered and highly vulnerable extinction.
