Bryde's whales feed on plankton, crustaceans and schools of fish, which they engulf in their huge mouths.
The creature was identified by Eduardo Acevedo as a Bryde’s whale. Acevedo’s extraordinary photographs reveal the gargantuan mammal just as it has ingested practically an entire school of bait fish.
