The baleen grows in strips down from the upper jaw. FACT FILE: There can be up to 180 plates of baleen on each side of a whale’s or shark’s jaw. The strips grow two-10 in/five-25 cm and, since the ends wear down from eating, they must continue to grow during the animal’s entire life. Baleen is used to filter amphipods from the ocean bottom.
