Gray whales are usually found in the North Pacific Ocean. These mammals can grow up to 15 meters (49 feet) long and weigh approximately 90,000 pounds, according to National Geographic. Gray whales are known to feed on a variety of species. They specialize in bottom feeding, focusing on amphipods-small, shrimp-like organisms that live in tube structures in mud. They also ingest other mud-dwelling invertebrates, including tube worms and mollusks.
