TGIF: The Biggest Poop On Earth (possibly)

Behold! The biggest poop on earth! Well, we don’t actually know if it’s the actual biggest poop, but it is a poop that came out of the biggest animal ever to exist on Earth.

Biggest poop on earth? Possibly. These blue whales were feeding off massive amounts of krill offshore San Diego this week. The whale poo is the same color as the krill they feed on, orange.
