Its name refers to Cetus, a sea monster in Greek mythology, although it is often called 'the whale' today".Despite their size, whales as well as other creatures are here only components of the phenomenon defined as the life on the Earth.

OK, my avatar shows a wondering cat. Interestingly, in Ukrainian words `kit' (a cat) and `kyt' (a whale) are similar in spelling. :)
