Welcome!

Welcome to Marine Mammals at Depth!

In this blog I will discuss a virtually unknown family of whales, the beaked whales. A species hailed as the deepest mammal freedivers on the planet. I will explore the¬†adaptations that allowed this dive to take place, the reasons why it took place and the dangers surrounding deep diving; the things that make this animal ‘extreme’!

Thanks for visiting! Feel free to comment!
