They`ve got a model whale heart at Te Papa museum in Wellington. The kids can climb in and out of it. It`s pretty creepy.

That`s a sculpture, right?

Either way, talk about scale... really helps illustrate the size of the beasts.

How dare they use a plastic (or whatever) one instead of hunting down and gutting a blue whale to put this on the web?

Okay the blue whales heart pictured here is not real but almost accurate in size. Think in context more about the size of a Mini Cooper and weighs anywhere of a healthy specimen from 1000 to 1300 pounds or in metric units 454kg to 591kg. It is needed for to carry and push the amount of oxygen in its blood for deep dives. it is the largest of all mammals.

"okay that`s not real...there`s no way they`re THAT big!"

No, of course not. it doesn`t make any sense at all that a 100 ft. long mammal would have a gigantic heart.

Effing incredible. I wonder how much pressure a blue whale`s left ventricle generates during systole?

If whales really had hearts that big it`d be them trying to save us.

It`s common knowledge that a whales heart is the same size as his fist.
