The Royal Ontario Museam has a collection of animal hearts for study. They managed to get a Blue Whale heart home to the museum. It’s a tremendous heart. It’s 5 feet wide x 4 feet long x 4 feet deep. It weighs 400 lbs and can pump 58 gallons of blood per beat. The aorta is about 12 inches in diameter. The Blue Whale would then have to eat a butt load of potato chips to clog that sucker.
