About this book

Learn all about the amazing world of dolphins and porpoises, and follow their lives from calf to adult. Did you know that dolphins and porpoises aren't fish? That the best way to tell a dolphin and a porpoise apart is to look at their teeth? Or that spinner dolphins can perform acrobatics? Find out many fascinating facts about these playful and highly intelligent creatures, from how they communicate to their hunting strategies, in this accessible and well-presented book from QED.

Each title in this appealing series takes an up-close look at a different creature, exploring habitat, conservation and animal adaptation, as well as looking at the life cycle of the particular animal and the way the young survive – often against tremendous odds. Animal Lives: Dolphins and Porpoises also discusses the importance of protecting endangered species and their habitats.
