Why? What kind of evolutionary backhand is this? This thing should be the big dog of the planet but it’s practically a cucked herbivore, is there anyway to fix this and make it a based super-predator and maybe even a weapon to realize its potential? Training and armament? Those big brains have to be good for something.

    I am pretty sure these animals aren't even that intelligent

    Not only is it the largest animal on the planet, but the largest animal to have ever existed, period. It's incredible when you think about it

    Krill are/were obscenely abundant thanks to the Antarctic circumpolar current. Even leopard seals have specialized teeth just to take advantage of them. If you're a small krill feeder and there's still tons of krill around, why not get bigger?

    >why
    Turns out the only reliable food source for such a large predator is not other large animals but entire clouds of tiny animals that it just has to scoop up in its mouth and doesnt need to waste energy killing.
    Masses of krill are like a giant ball of food you can eat from, but only if you have the tools to do so.
    If you want to find them cooler just think of them as giant snakes who go around swallowing entire colonies of mice in one gulp.

    You would think so, wouldn’t you? Kinda funny how there’s no sea-spanning whale civilization yet, maybe they just keep it a secret.

    Smart. If you hunt something that's just a bit smaller than you, it's a lot of work and you risk injury.

    Can’t they accidentally destroy and capsize ships with their tails? If they were actually aggressive and preyed on people and such they’d very likely be extinct with how hard the planet would come down on them.

    Animals with passive lifestyles are more energy efficient and can more easily attain such sizes.

    Well, for one there's always the evolutionary possibility of a predator evolving that's capable of actually preying on them. That's how megalodon was able to rise up in the first place; by evolving to a size where it could hunt these brand new gigantic fucking beasts called cetaceans that just arrived on the scene 35 million years ago. Maybe if we all stopped cumming plastic into the ocean for the next 10 million years, we might actually have the opportunity for something as awesome as that to evolve again.

      The earth will never again have that high a concentration of atmospheric oxygen again without human intervention, so no.

    Agreed, strap some rocket launchers and mini guns that work underwater on this bad boy and set it to patrol waters, more effective than any submarine provided you can mind fuck it enough to do what you say.

      Pretty sure there’s no record of Orcas killing grown Blue Whales, just lone calfs, which are in themselves rare since there’s just way easier prey.

        There have been a few rare instances of them preying on adults. Although those were in the 20m range.

      Because krill is pretty much what there is to eat when you grow this big.

      They can't compete with sonar specialists , something that it's required if you want to eat meat in an ocean with nothing much to eat.
      >but it’s practically a cucked herbivore
      Not true, krill aren't plants.

      And also, humans. Blue whales have a really, and I can't stress this enough, hard time competing with us. Unfortunately we're eating this entire planet out and this challenge is proving to be too much for the biggest animal on the planet.
