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).

Peka Kah

I guess the Russian word 'Peka' is mean River.

In fact the name of this river is Kan. And the Russian word for "river" is "reka".

I think you read it as "Peka Kah", because it was written in Cyrillic alphabet as "Река Кан".

Р = R
е = e (actually - ye)
к = k
а = a

К = k
а = a
н = n

Thank you Оксана to provide me such information that I can't get it from any website.
