Food is the mode of evolution, the way one species transforms into another. To eat is to take in the whole environment: sunlight, soil, water and air.

Traveling night and day, the gray whale averages approximately 75 mi per day, at an average speed of 3-5 miles per hour, to reach warm waters to mate and have babies. Their round trip from the Arctic sea to the warm Lagoons go Mexico of 10,000–15,000 mi is believed to be the longest annual migration of any mammal. By mid-December to early January, the majority are usually found between Monterey and San Diego, often visible from shore.
