Gray Whales have an unusual feeding habit among cetaceans.  They feed by rolling onto their sides and taking a large mouthful of sediment from the seafloor,  and straining small crustaceans,  amphipods,  worms,  and other animals out using their baleen plates.  After a Gray Whale has chosen a side to roll to during feeding (usually the right side),  they will stick with this choice for life,  and older whales are often blind in the eye on their chosen side due to damage from mud and sand.
