Is the Whale a Fish? [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 30 October 1880

Is the "Whale a Fish? Soiencefor All, The whale is undoubtedly extremely fish-like in all its. relations, as viewed from the popular standpoint. It posBOBses a fish-like body, it inhabits the sea, and it lives a completely aquntio existence. Hence, to say that a whale is a fish, appears at first sight an emi nently safe ahd justifiable assertion. Notwithstanding the likeness existing between these animal*, however, there may be fouud ample reason for their complete separation in some very simple and common facts of natural history. 'For instance, the wholo breathes by lungs, like ourselves, and, as everyone knows, has to ascend periodically to tho BUrfaco of tbo waler, to inbale air from the atmosphere. The fish, on tbe con trary, breathes by gills ; and in virtue of tho poHsession of those organs is enabled to remain permanently in tho water, ahd to extract from it tho oxygen nbcessary for the aoration of its blood. The body-covering of tho whalo consists typically of hairs, althou...
