Summary Blue whales are the largest creatures on Earth, and probably the largest creatures to have ever existed on Earth. They occur in all oceans, with three subspecies currently recognized. They feed on euphausiid crustaceans, close to primary productivity. They make infrasonic sounds that reach to hundreds of kilometers, and may communicate effectively over long distances in an ocean basin. Social/sexual strategies have not yet been fully described.
