Minke whale baleen plates (Balaenoptera acutorostrata)

Minke whale baleen plates (Balaenoptera acutorostrata), held by Dr Peter Arnold of the Museum of Tropical Queensland. The baleen, made of keratin, is used as a filter-feeder system inside the mouths of some whale species. Water is taken in and pushed out against the baleen, thereby trapping food such as krill.
