Aquarium of the Pacific

Aquarium of the Pacific, Long Beach, California

Alumni Exhibits was hired by Aquarium of the Pacific to create a 3 foot durable interactive model of the jaws of a Blue whale. Baleen whales, like the Blue whale, lack teeth and instead feed with plates of baleen. The baleen acts like a strainer to filter nutrients. The model retained important details such as the krill deposited on the tongue during feeding.
