    Dear Amaranta,

    Blue whales stay underwater most of the time because the water helps support
    all that weight. A blue whale out of water is in deep trouble. Blue whales
    stay underwater because that is where their food friends and family are.

    Blue whales stay underwater because they have to.

    Dr. Tom Ford

    Dear Dr. Ford,
           I learned that when it is cold in the North Pole and in the South
    Pole blue whales swim to the equator. Why do blue whales stay underwater
    most of the time?
    Sincerely,
    Amaranta
                       
    P.S. How can blue whales fit so many krill in their mouth?
