Adult blue whales have no natural predators. They are too big and too strong to be attacked and killed by any animal. However, Orca's (Killer Whales) are known to attack and kill youngsters. A group of Orca's can easily hunt a baby blue whale if its mother is not around. Otherwise, they have no natural predators

Younger and small blue whale calves may be attacked by "killer whales" (Orcas) or by other large sharks.

Other than humans, the "cookiecutter sharks" (Isistius brasiliensis) also "eat" whales, taking bites from large whales such as the blue whale. These sharks do not normally attain a size over 3 feet (1 m), and their small bites would not normally cause any real injury to a healthy whale.
