Spain. Valencian Community. Oropesa del Mar. The project of Marina d’Or (Ciudad de Vacaciones)) began in the mid-1990s. At first it looked like a traditional tourist urbanization, but in less than 15 years it became a major tourist project. Fake artificial animals near a campground's swimming pool. A killer whale, a dolphin and a giraffe. The killer whale or orca (Orcinus orca) is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family, of which it is the largest member. Killer whales are apex predators, as no animal preys on them. A cosmopolitan species, they can be found in each of the world's oceans in a variety of marine environments. Dolphin is a common name of aquatic mammals within the order Cetacea. The term dolphin usually refers to the extant families Delphinidae (the oceanic dolphins), Platanistidae (the Indian river dolphins), Iniidae (the new world river dolphins), and Pontoporiidae (the brackish dolphins), and the extinct Lipotidae (baiji or Chinese river dolphin). There are 40 extant species named as dolphins. The giraffe (Giraffa) is a genus of African even-toed ungulate mammals, the tallest living terrestrial animals and the largest ruminants. The genus currently consists of one species, Giraffa camelopardalis, the type species. Oropesa del Mar (Valencian: Orpesa) is a municipality in the comarca of Plana Alta in the Valencian Community. An autonomous community is a first-level political and administrative division, created in accordance with the Spanish constitution of 1978, with the aim of guaranteeing limited autonomy of the nationalities and regions that make up Spain. 13.09.2018 © 2018 Didier Ruef
