Lunge Feeding!
This gray whale took few fast lunges at groups of krill in the upwelling of nutrient-rich water of Monterey Bay. "This is a really rare phenomenon here," notes a thrilled Katie Dunbar of Monterey Bay Whale Watch. "Gray Whales specialize in feeding on amphipods in the silt and muddy bottom of the Arctic seas, so they are very different when feeding at the surface." What do you see that would also happen when this whale feeds at the bottom?
