What is the most buoyant animal?

    The most buoyant animals are animals that have large quantities of materials that are less dense that water (i.e. lubber, lung tissue, etc.). For example, a whale with a large amount of blubber with be more buoyant that a penguin with less blubber.

    However, buoyancy is actually not always the most useful trait for animals who are living in the water. A high buoyancy will make diving and deep swimming (which may be required for hunting) much harder, this in turn causes greater energy use that is not very efficient.
