Largest whales with the largest diets of all time
Baleen whales today are the largest in existence, a new study shows that they are eating more than ever. Their size has increased to help eat more food, which has led to some binging since the last ice age.

Sad news, which we're keeping an eye on - three dead whales (at least one confirmed as a minke, according to Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme- UK strandings) either beached or floating dead in water just off the Suffolk/Essex coast.

A freshly dead minke whale was also found at Oxwich Bay on the Gower peninsula, Wales yesterday.

There's nothing to suggest any links...
