Raintree Perspectives


In Orcas, readers will discover the special abilities that these amazing animals have adapted to help them survive in their wild environment, what humans have trained them to do using their special skills and intelligence, and where their abilities are vastly superior to our own. Did you know that orca mothers teach their babies how to hunt, or that orcas can hear through their jawbone? The book also looks at how we have used technology to recreate orcas' abilities.
