How Do Whales Drink Water?

Answer

How whales are divided is based on their eating mechanisms and habits. Baleen whales have two rows of baleen plates at the root of their mouth. They swim with their mouth open and gather krill. Baleen whales do not drink salt water. They get their water from the foods that they eat. Toothed whales catch their prey with their teeth. Fish is a great source of water for whales because it is not salty. However, krill is salty and the salt is released by their kidneys into their urine.
