Killer Whales

Performing orca in Seaworld

Specialised hunting strategy

Killer whales are the top predators in the ocean. Their prey varies from seals to rays to dolphins to whales. They have even been known to attck great white sharks.

Orcas can live up to 90 years in the wild but in captivity most only live untill their 20s. Males can be up to 9 metres in lenght and over 8 tonnes. Their dorsal fin can be as long as 2 metres. They are very opportunistic and social animals

Killer Whales

We live in every ocean and are very adaptable.

Pod of orcas in the wild

A captive male orca called Tilikum has killed 3 humans while in Sea World. No wild orca has ever killed a human.

Do you think it's right to keep me in captivity and make me to tricks to earn money for Sea World?
