  1. suborder mysticeti

    Suborder Mysticeti, also known as baleen whales, is a taxonomic group within the order Cetacea, which includes marine mammals such as whales, dolphins, and porpoises. The defining characteristic of this suborder is the presence of baleen plates in the mouth, which they use to filter out small organisms from the water for food. The suborder Mysticeti includes the largest animals on earth, such as the blue whale, and is further subdivided into four families: Balaenidae (right and bowhead whales), Neobalaenidae (pygmy right whales), Eschrichtiidae (gray whales), and Balaenopteridae (rorquals).
