The Big Blue (2007)

For years, fishermen have known of a unique spot in the ocean off southern Australia, a place of amazing catches and a huge luminescent blue creature of the deep. As much as one hundred feet long, weighing up to 180-tons, with a heart the size of a Volkswagen, and a tongue that weighs more than an elephant, the blue whale is a sight to behold.
