display_descriptionAn in-depth introduction to a popular species of marine mammal and the various habitats in which it can be found. Annotation. Killer Whales of the World is an in-depth introduction to a ubiquitous, easily recognized, and popular species of marine mammal. Those interested in marine biology, marine animals, coastal conservation issues and animal lovers in general are sure to appreciate this book.

This comprehensive and highly informative book explains the origin of the name "Killer Whale," where they can be found, their traveling behaviors and feeding habits, and some of the threats they face as a species. It also examines this well-known whale's place in popular culture.

For those who just cannot seem to get enough of this hugely popular mammal, the book offers places to find additional information about killer whales and also gives some locations where readers can go to see the animal first hand.

Annotation. Baird, a US biologist expert on killer whales (aka: orcas), helped relocate Keiko (of fame) to Iceland. He presents facts and research on these Cetaceans, where to see them, a conservation case study, and current thinking on whether there is more than one species. Includes color photos, distribution maps, and websites for further information. Oversize landscape format. Annotation c.
