Killer Whales, Dolphins, and a Narwhal! Brush up on your ABC's and ocean trivia knowledge with this jam packed poster featuring 26 deep sea animals and underwater mysteries. Each letter of the alphabet is paired with an illustration from our friend Dave Perillo and accompanied by a fun fact you can use to impress your friends.
For instance, did you know when startled, flying fish are able to rapidly propel themselves out of the water and glide through the air with their wing-like pectoral fins. In the right conditions, they can soar along at 43mph, covering distances of over 1,300 feet!
Or that contrary to what their name suggests, killer whales are not actually whales at all. These marine behemoths are the largest members of the dolphin family and, much like other dolphins, are extremely social animals. They are sometimes called "the wolves of the sea," because of their pack-hunting behaviors.
