a field guide to the planet - by Damon Ramsey
The mammals of the oceans around Antarctica...
Leopard Seal eating penguin. After Orca, this is the main predator in Antarctic waters.
Balaenoptera physalus, 'Fin Whale'. Second largest animal in the world, after Blue Whale. Found in oceans worldwide, but only common in colder waters.
Megaptera novaeangliae, Humpback Whale 'hump back' and fin.

Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? The first expedition I am booked to work on after the virus is Micronesia, New Guinea & Indonesia in 2021 with Silversea.
