You already know that whales aren't fish, but did you know they are mammals, just like us humans, who need to hold their breath under water? In The World of Whales we explore many interesting facts about these fantastic animals, looking at the habits and characteristics that make the many 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. Join our sub-aquatic expedition to follow agile fins and flukes, learn about their routines, and marvel as these marine giants breach the ocean’s surface.
There is much to learn about these curious, sociable and playful animals. Did you know that male humpback whales create their own set of songs each year or that bowhead whales can live up to 200 years?
