Killer Whales by John Malam
Scary Creatures is an entertaining series investigating the more grisly aspects of natural history. What do killer whales eat? How do they find their food? How can they survive in extreme cold? And do they deserve their scary name? This book introduces us to the lifestyle of this graceful, intelligent and fascinating creature, and the difficulties it faces in today's polluted oceans. Scary Creatures: Killer Whales is packed with facts written in an accessible question-and-answer format. Special x-ray pages enable readers to see how the internal structure of an animal corresponds to its external appearance. The book features startlingly realistic illustrations and impressive photographs. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal educational text.
