Temperature drops during ingestion events. (A) Example of a sequence of four temperature drops with long-lasting temperature recovery from whale #24638 (19 Aug. 2012, 12:01). (B) Example of a temperature drop from whale #3965 (14 Aug. 2013, 15:42) with an initial feeding depth of 173 m (temperature drop to 34.5°C), three other temperature drops at min 63, 89, and 105, and then prolonged recovery of the stomach temperature lasting almost 4 h. Note that depths of temperature drops were not available for all ingestion events.
