Hummm...
"Megalodon" is the critter I recall, but he's not much bigger tha "Ol Blue"
There's GIANT version of Megalodon which is 10X that size...


And then there's THESE critters...
(Hint: They do NOT fit in your aquarium! Or your house...)

One theory is: SOME Ancient creatures didn't "get old" they just kept on growing... this theory really helps explain a LOT of things...

The biggest animal ever to have known to have existed in the history of the planet...

@davymid: Biggest Mammal by far, but some of the 'fish' in the dinosaur era mke the BW look like a guppy...

Sorry, I cannot recall the name of the MONSTER dinosaur fish..
Picture this:
Blue whale = Volkswagen Beetle...
This Fish = Aircraft Carrier...

Yeah, it was THAT big...

He's safe enough. The biggest animal ever to have known to have existed in the history of the planet, the Blue Whale, can't swallow anything bigger than a grapefruit.

Whale are very aware of their surrounding & surprisingly agile.

They are not some sea idiot shredders with their mouth open, swallowing randomthings. Intelligent beings.
There are stories of whales grabbing divers leg and diving deeper but they let go when the diver struggles. Think they are just playing.

You'd just get stuck in his baleen and would have to be flossed out like a piece of apple.

This is a humpback. They travel from pole to pole, and are very social (read bored) animals. On a whale-watching boat, the more noise we made, the closer the whales came. This one is in shallow water, probably rubbing against the sand to scrape crab-sized parasites off its body.

I think I learned on Qi that blue whales can only fit things the size of grapefruit down their digestive tract. A humpback whale is smaller so pretty sure it couldn't even almost swallow a human.

As jealous as I am, that would still be an "oh poo" moment.

Fancy, whales are not Bond villain. They are plankton eating, peaceful & curios mammals. He is just hanging, checking out a noisy & ungainly creature.

Am envious of the diver, lucky sob.

This whale would prefer plankton and swallowing other things non-detrimental to it's digestive tract. Unless the bible.

Most whales do not eat great fish-
Wikipedia:
"Whales are generally classed as predators, but their food ranges from microscopic plankton to very large animals.
Toothed whales eat fish and squid, which they hunt by the use of echolocation. Killer whales sometimes eat other marine mammals, including whales.
Baleen whales, such as humpbacks and blues, mainly eat krill when feeding in the higher latitudes (such as the Southern Ocean). They imbibe enormous amounts of seawater, which they expel through their baleen plates; the krill is retained on the plates and then swallowed.[17] Whales do not drink seawater but indirectly extract water from their food by metabolizing fat.[17]"

Link: Whale Meets Man, Man Meets Whale [Pic] [Rate Link] - Anyone know anything about whales? Wouldn't a whale just suck this man up like a fish without a care in the world?
