National Geographic Big Blue: 4, 18, 25, 32, 80

Nope, these ain't the winning numbers of the latest lotto draw but rather interesting facts and numbers about the baby blue whale:
4 - eats an average of 4 tons of krill daily
18 - has been around for 18 million years
25 - weighs more than 25 adult elephants
32 - has been clocked at up to 32 km per hour
80 - has a lifetime of at least 80 years
Ready to see how big it actually is?  See the life-sized replica at the traveling exhibition of National Geographic Big Blue:  Glorietta 5 - Nov. 17-26, 2009 • Trinoma - Nov. 28-Dec. 11, 2009 • Alabang Town Center - Jan. 4-17, 2010 • Market! Market! - Jan. 18-Feb. 2, 2010 • Greenbelt - Feb. 3-17, 2010
