  • Would you survive if you got accidentally  got swallowed by a Blue Whale, the world's 

  • largest mammal? The Blue Whale can measure about 100  

  • feet, or 30 meters, in length. They can weigh 400,000 poundswhich is around 180,000 kgs

  • But, since Blue Whales are filter-feeders,  a human wouldn't even fit down the animal's 

  • esophagus- it's just too small. So, we might end up in its mouth, but we  

  • would thankfully just get spat back out. But if, somehow, you were swallowed, the next hurdle would  

  • be dealing with the whale's digestive system

  • Enzymes would burn your skin and you'd be in  pretty excruciating pain, and if somehow you 

  • were still alive, you'd end up  in one of four stomach chambers

  • And if you've made it all the  way, you'd likely die anyway  

  • because there's no air down there, just methane gas, whichas the chief  

  • chemical in fartsisn't exactly good for you. So maybe it's just best to stay out of the water.
