An Eden’s whale trap feeding in the Gulf of Thailand. This extraordinary behaviour (where the whale treads water!) is thought to have developed because pollution has made the Gulf of Thailand a hypoxic environment. Sewage outflows from the land have caused all the oxygen in the water to be used up, except at the surface. This means the whale’s fish prey can only live in this surface layer. By treading water and keeping the corners of their mouth below the surface, a flow is created pulling the fish into the whale's mouth. In the panic, some of the fish also seem to jump out the water and into the whale’s mouth! To see these whales in action, check out the Oceans episode of ‘A Perfect Planet’ in the UK on BBC iPlayer - other territories soon! Video/Caption by bertiegregory #WildlifePlanet

From @balam_says: “🔊 So I hired this crew to come in and fix my roof. It was a disaster. They were lazy, distracted, arrogant and too expensive. I don’t recommend them at all.” #catsofinstagram https://t.co/lpqkM4Vnw1
