Hi from San Diego


Cute little dolphin.

Whales, dolphins and porpoises comprise an order of mammals called the Cetacea. There are around 77 species of living cetaceans.

Cetus is Latin and is used in biological names to mean "whale"; its original meaning, "large sea animal", was more general.

Cetaceans are the mammals best adapted to aquatic life. Their body is fusiform (spindle-shaped).

Hello from Pakistan!
I want to swap a postcard with world UNESCO heritage site from your country. Can you send me one such card?
In return I can send you a nice postcard with beautiful landscape from Pakistan - which I think will be a great addition in your collection?

You can leave me a comment at http://mycoolpostcardcollection.blogspot.com/

We can also make a blog link exchange if you are interested....

Best Regards
Yours Cheema
