Pygmy Right Whale v Saltwater Crocodile

Saltwater Crocodile - Crocodylus porosus
Largest living crocodilian species with a confirmed measurement, and in fact the world's largest living reptile in terms of mass. Adult males can reach sizes of up to 6 or 7 metres (20 to 23 feet), the largest confirmed individual being 20.7 feet (6.3 metres). There is always a lot of interest over the largest ever recorded saltie. In general, males over 5 m (17 feet) in length are extremely rare. Females are smaller, the normal maximum adult size being 2.5 m to 3 m (8 to 10 feet) being the normal maximum adult size. Maximum weight varies, but has been known to exceed 1,000 kg in 18 to 19 foot adults. 5 metre adults are closer to 400 to 500 kg. This is a large-headed species with a heavy set of jaws. A pair of ridges run from the eye orbits along the centre of the snout, becoming more distinct with age. The upper surface of the top jaw becomes very rugose in large adult males.

Pygmy Right Whale - Caperea marginata
The pygmy right whale (Caperea marginata) is not a right whale at all but is instead a member of the cetotheres, a family of baleen whales, which until 2012 were thought to be extinct; previously C. marginata was considered the sole member of the family Neobalaenidae. First described by John Edward Gray in 1846, it is the smallest of the baleen whales, ranging between 6 metres (20 ft) and 6.5 metres (21 ft) in length and 3,000 and 3,500 kg in mass. Despite its name, the pygmy right whale may have more in common with the gray whale and rorquals than the bowhead and right whales. The pygmy right whale is found in the Southern Ocean in the lower reaches of the Southern Hemisphere, and feeds on copepods and euphausiids. Little is known about its population or social habits. Unlike most other baleen whales, it has rarely been subject to exploitation.
