They are in the group of whales called toothed whales. Many people think dolphins and porpoises are fish, but this is simply not true. They are mammals, just like dogs, cats, horses. “[This book] contains many good illustrations of the majority of extant species of whales, dolphins, and porpoises (cetaceans).

This would also be god for animal lovers as it gives so much information of these specific animals and marine life.4/5. Here’s a Hello, World.
