Krill are small shrimp-like crustaceans that are best known as the favored diet of the blue whale. The largest animal on earth, the giant blue whale can eat up to 6 million krill a day!

Krill are a type of plankton (actually, zooplankton or "animal drifter"). Krill will eat even smaller zooplankton, but they prefer to dine on phytoplankton ("plant drifter") – and it is the abundance of this plant-life in their bellies that accounts for the green splotch visible through their transparent skin.
