According to the scientists whales are one of the most ancient inhabitants of our planet; they appeared on the Earth 60 million years ago. Unique feature of these animals is that whales are the only mammal, except human which can sing. Some specialties successfully mastered by white whales (delivery of equipment to divers, search of lost subjects, underwater video shooting), are able to make them invaluable assistants to people in exploration of Arctic regions. Cases of rescue people by whales are also known.

Walruses are the largest pinnipeds, which live in northern hemisphere. Despite apparent slowness, they are graceful and agile. Walruses are also very sociable and kind animals.
