The images above show a cross section through the head of a generalized baleen whale where the baleen appears yellow, pink areas are the tongue and associated muscles, black dots represent food items. Water and food pours into the mouth as the mouth is opened (left); the mouth is shut part way, the tongue is expanded to push out the water, while food items, unable to escape through the baleen, are trapped (right).
