Primate brain evolution

Primate brain evolution. Conceptual computer artwork of a brain (centre) with a monkey head (left) and a human head (right), representing the evolution of primate brains. Monkeys and humans are both primates, mammals that have good eyesight and flexible hands and feet. Both descend from a common ancestor, but have evolved differently. Their brains are similar, but humans have complex language and reasoning abilities. They also have highly developed technology, populate most of the land areas of the globe, are exploring surrounding space, and have scientific theories to explain the world around them. Monkeys live in jungles where they hunt and forage for food

Right whale mother and calf

Right whales. Computer artwork of a female right whale with its calf. The gestation period is just over a month. The calf feeds on its mother's milk for its first year. Adult right whales can reach over 16 metres in length and over 100 tonnes in weight. They are baleen whales that feed on food filtered from the water by baleen plates in their mouths. There are two right whales species: the northern right whale (Eubalaena glacialis) and the southern right whale (Eubalaena australis), found in the northern and southern oceans respectively. Some consider northern and southern right whales to be subspecies. This whale was so-named because it was considered the right whale to hunt

Sperm whale and giant squid

Sperm whale and giant squid. Computer artwork of a sperm whale (Physeter catodon, or macrocephalus, left) hunting a giant squid (Architeuthis sp. at right). Sperm whales can reach 18 metres in length and giant squid can be up to 10 metres long. Sperm whales are toothed whales (teeth seen in lower jaw), though the teeth are thought to be used in aggression between males, rather than eating. Sperm whales dive deep (over 1000 metres) to hunt their main prey, giant squid. The squid can defend itself with suckers and sharp beak, and scars are found on whales from these defences. However, the giant squid is rarely seen, most often found in a sperm whale's intestines or washed up on a beach
