The inside of the jaws of a humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) during cooperative bubble net feeding on the Morris Reef, Point Hayes, Chatham Strait, Southeast Alaska, USA.
This photo shows how much the whales' jaws are distended when lunge feeding like this. A solitary Pacific herring (Clupea pallasii) can be seen in the middle as well as the bristles on the inside of the baleen plates.
