About this book

Language: Japanese with English chapter and section headings

Studies done in recent years have shown that killer whale ecology in various parts of the world is shaped by food availability and habitat, leading to different herd lifestyles. In this book, Mizuguchi combines his own observations traveling around the world, with the contributions of researchers working on the frontline, giving a realistic image of the animal called the orca. Along with the photos taken by Mizuguchi himself, also this book also includes valuable ecological photographs from other photographers.
