Dive into an exploration of these majestic mammals, one of the most fascinating animal species on the planet. You already know that whales aren’t fish, but mammals who need to breath and hold their breath under water, just like us humans? And that the blue whale grows to be longer than three buses?
In The World of Whales you will explore many interesting facts about these fantastic animals, looking at the habits and characteristics that make the multiple species of this family so special. From the stealthy orcas that traverse the seas, to the beautiful songs of humpbacks and the booming calls of the blue whales, we immerse ourselves in the lives of these grandiose swimmers.
