Keith Interviews Chad, the Blue Whale
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     "Good morning, boys and girls. I'm Keith Trace, host of Amazing Animals. Today's guest is really someone special. He's the biggest guest we've ever had. When I say biggest, I mean really biggest. We have a much bigger chair here for this one. His name is Chad, and he's a blue whale. Good morning, Chad."
 
2     "Morning, Keith. Thanks for the big chair. When you're as big as I am, it is hard to find comfortable seating."
 
3     "I bet. You're enormous, Chad. And I mean that in a good way."
 
4     "Thanks. You're right that I'm huge. I weigh 353,000 pounds, about average for a blue whale. Some of us weigh up to 375,000 pounds."
 
5     "Holy smokes, Chad, that's a lot. What is something we can compare that to?"
 
6     "Big elephants weigh about 7,100 pounds, so if you do the math, that means I weigh as much as 50 elephants. Keith, you look like an average adult, which means I weigh 1,860 times more than you."
 
7     "Are there any animals bigger than you?"
 
8     "No, there aren't. In fact, there has never been an animal bigger than I am. Even big dinosaurs were smaller."
