>1. WHERE DO BLUE WHALES LIVE.
The blue whale is found in most oceans of the world.  They are observed in
coastal waters, like the Gulf of St. Lawrence or occasionnally the Gulf of
Maine, where plankton is abundant.

>2. WHAT ENEMIES DOES IT HAVE.
Beside the killer whales, the destruction of the whale's habitat (pollution,
over-exploitation...) is one of the main danger for the blue whales.

>3. WHAT DOES IT EAT.
Blue whales feed almost exclusively on euphausiids or krill, a shrimp-like
planktonic crustacean.
