Whales Gallery CollectionWhales are marine mammals and belong to the order Cetacea. They include the largest living animal on the earth, the blue whale. Whales commonly include Killer Whales or Pilot Whales but they are actually dolphins. For centuries whales have been hunted for meat and as a source of valuable raw materials. By the middle of the 20th century, large-scale industrial whaling had left many species seriously endangered. Go Back to Gallery Collection: Mammals
