Overview

Dolphins by Erik D Stoops, Jeffrey Martin, Debbie Lynne Stone

Dive into the fascinating world of dolphins and porpoises, and learn about some of the most beautiful and intriguing animals on earth. Filled with more than 100 full-color photographs, almost all taken in the wild, this informative introduction is organized in an easy-to-read question-and-answer format. Find out where dolphins live, what their bodies are like, how their senses meet the demands of life in the sea, what and how they eat, the way they reproduce and care for their young, how they protect themselves, and their relationships with people. Meet the whole family of dolphin species from the well-known Bottlenose Dolphin (made popular by the Flipper television show and film) to the extremely rare Vaquita porpoise, which only grows to an average of 4 1/2 feet long. Discover amazing facts such as that the Killer Whale is actually a dolphin, that dolphins and porpoises first swam in the seas around 12 million years ago, that they swallow their food whole, and that they use their own language to talk to each other. Learn also about how people's actions are endangering the world's dolphin population and find out what can be done to protect these intelligent and graceful creatures. 80 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 8 1/2.
