Kelp fronds and pneumatocysts.  Pneumatocysts, gas-filled bladders, float the kelp plant off the ocean bottom toward the surface and sunlight, where the leaf-like blades and stipes of the kelp plant grow fastest.  Giant kelp can grow up to 2' in a single day given optimal conditions.  Epic submarine forests of kelp grow throughout California's Southern Channel Islands, Macrocystis pyrifera, San Clemente Island A view of an underwater forest of giant kelp.  Giant kelp grows rapidly, up to 2' per day, from the rocky reef on the ocean bottom to which it is anchored, toward the ocean surface where it spreads to form a thick canopy.  Myriad species of fishes, mammals and invertebrates form a rich community in the kelp forest.

Cardon cactus, near La Paz, Baja California, Mexico.  Known as the elephant cactus or Mexican giant cactus, cardon is largest cactus in the world and is endemic to the deserts of the Baja California peninsula.  Some specimens of cardon have been measured over 21m (70) high.  These slow-growing plants live up to 300 years and can weigh 25 tons.  Cardon is often mistaken for the superficially similar saguaro of Arizona and Sonora, but the saguaro does not occupy Baja California, Pachycereus pringlei A blue whale eating krill.  This blue whale is seen feeding and surfacing amid krill with its throat fully engorged with krill and water.  It will push the water back out with its tongue, trapping the krill in its baleen which acts like a filter.
