Humpback Whales Feeding
Between South America and Antarctica, the cold waters produce nutrients that feed billions of tiny krill, whose collective weight surpasses that of the human race. Humpback whales come down from the north to feast on upwards of 2 tons of krill each day. To round up the little fish, the humpbacks form air bubbles that pull the krill to the surface. The video talks more about the humpback/krill phenomenon.
