Description
The ventral pleats of this little whale run all the way to it's middle. In the fashion of an acordian the pleats allow the mouth to expand so the whale can engulf entire schools of fish in a single lunge. All the water is pushed back out through the baleen plates that hang from the upper jaw. The humpack is a predator on a huge scale, however, it's just milk for now.
