Dear Mohamed ,
Blue whales eat lots of small critters. Some are ; Meganyctiphanes
norvegica, Thysanoessa inermis and Temora longicornis. All of these are
different types of krill. Blue whales specialize in krill because there are
so many of them. The biggest animals eat huge n=amounts of krill because
they are available and have all the nutrition that a whale needs.
