Surfer Almost Gets Swallowed By A Whale

Submitted by: fancylad 5 years ago Science

Be honest, who else would have evacuated their bowels when the whale popped up?

Okay, so I went and did the googling and such. A blue whale, which is the largest, can`t even swallow a beach ball, so yeah. I was wrong lol.

You joking? I can`t find the exact diameter of a humpback`s, but the monterey aquarium says blue whale`s esophagus is only 10 centimeters.
So it`s unlikely that either could swallow a human.

The kayakers don`t count? Also, I was surprised by the lack of reaction by the person filming

kiriluv- do you know ANYTHING about humor? That was most definitely a joke.

Although I`m still laughing at your pitiful attempt to redirect the issue, humpback is still a ridiculously sexual name.

Kalon. A humpback whale (which these were) could swallow a human, and digest it while it lives.

Weird comment is weird.

@CrakrJak No the premium`s for all the hot gay action. That`s why SF costs so much.

@greenbasterd - I`ve been out trying to snorkel with blue sharks - birds loafing all over the water - Suddenly they are up like someone electrified the sea. We didn`t even see that shark, but I`m sure one was present. The birds know.

@talon - if these were sperm whales (which they are not) - how big do you think their esophagus is - bearing in mind they eat giant squid. Or for that matter, take the biggest dolphin, the killer whale, which can swallow a Dall`s porpoise whole?

Then ask if a human could fit down their gullet.

Don`t assume a fact about the plankton eating giants...extends to all members of the cetacea..

No. Whale`s esophagus is too narrow to fit a person down. Nobody has ever "almost gotten swallowed by a whale" ever.

How lucky is that? Probably wouldn`t have time to be scared before you realised you`d just had one of the best moments of your life.

Red tide, whales, dolphins.... boring. Kidding. Now you see why people in Southern Cal. love living here. But wait, there`s more. You can always see the harbor seals but in the sping you can get pretty close while they birth the pups.
Baby Harbor Seal in San Diego

Now if it just weren`t so damn expensive to live here.

Crakr, yes I know it`s not a fish, but saying "mamals that returned to the sea eat you" would have sounded stupid.

And for general knowledge, they`re hunting anchovy

HalfPintRoo, If you look closely you`ll see the whale is hunting a school of little fish when it breaches.

But yeah, that`s intense. Also I think it was a sperm whale (you may all giggle like 6th graders now).

I had a sea otter swim by my legs when I was waist-deep in the water once. That made me almost evacuate my bowels.

I don`t live by the ocean, so I may just be naive, but why is the chick out in the middle of the bay, on a surfboard when there are no waves? Does she just paddle around out there?

Whales seem really big when you see them in videos and on television, but when you see them up close in real life like that, they are even bigger.

I was wondering more why the seagulls go nuts... they know that isn`t a fish they could take home for dinner, right?
