Hello Chris, your question is a good one. The closest relative to the blue
whale would probably be the elephant/rhino as it is believed that both
toothed and baleen whales evolved from a hoofed land mammal about 55
million years ago.  Baleen whales evolved later then the toothed whales.

Thank you, Kim Marshall
