About this book

Fascinating color photos let you see whales in their natural habitat. Learn about their behavior, external anatomy, and physical features.

Discussed in Closer to the Great Whales are the Humpback, Minke, Finback, and the rarely seen Right whales, baleen whales that eat by taking in thousands of gallons of water and schools of fish or plankton and filtering the water through the baleen. Discover their behaviors, including breaching, lob tailing, and flipper slapping. Closer to the Great Whales is a fascinating look at the largest mammals to roam the Earth today.
