The largest creature ever to have lived on our planet is a whale (about 30 meter or 90 feet in length): the blue whale. They have been among us for about 50 million years. In that time they have diversified into many species some of which have become extinct by now. They (the baleen whales) feed mostly on invertebrates and show a range of remarkable behaviors: social structure, complicated reproductive strategies, harmonious and intricated sounds... You can find more about them in your local library. Try to choose either species (blue, minke, grey, humpback, etc.) or a topic (communication, migration, reproduction, etc.) that you feel intrigues you the most and enjoy reading. I promisse that you will never stop being amazed by their abilities. Best wishes, Aldemaro Romero, Ph.D.
