Whale: Reaktion Animal Series
With lengths recorded of more than 30 metres and the blue whale's tongue alone often weighing more than an African elephant, whales are the largest creatures known to man. Written by conservation biologist, Joe Roman, Whale takes an in-depth look at the history of these magnificent creatures and the effects they have had on our society and culture.
Pushed to the brink of extinction by humans, these fascinating creatures have become awe-inspiring and heavily respected due to their size, intelligence and beauty. Including several illustrations depicting representations of whales through history, this book is an ideal gift for anyone with a love of natural sciences.
