Anatomy: Minke whales grow to be about 25-30 feet (7.8-9 m) long, weighing about 6-7.5 tons (5.4-6.8 tonnes). The females are slightly larger than the males, as with all baleen whales. Calves weigh about 770 pounds (350 kg) at birth.
Diet: Minke whales are carnivores that filter feed plankton (tiny crustaceans like krill, copepods, pteropods, etc.) and small fish from the water.
