It is a whale. It looks like a humpback whale. It is a mammal and it lives in the sea. Other sea mammals include seals, sea cows, sea lions, orcas, walruses, manatees and dolphins.
The novel is about a whale. Melville’s experiences at sea working on a whaling ship probably helped him write the book.
Whaling is strictly controlled and in some parts of the world it is illegal. Whales used to be hunted for their blubber, oil and meat. Today there is less demand for these products as we can use alternatives, but some whales are still hunted for their meat in some areas.
