The oceans of the world are filled with so many interesting animals! In fact, there are thousands of different kinds or "species." Some are really huge, like the blue whale, which sometimes grows to be the size of the biggest dinosaurs! Others are very tiny, like zooplankton, which can be smaller than your pencil eraser.
