    Notes
    Orcas are actually dolphins. And they are the largest of the dolphin family and go from a calve to an adult.
    Killer whales are suited for their environment because they are fast swimmers reaching speeds up to 28mph and are extremely agile and can easily maneuver in the water.
    There are different types of Orcas which are referred to as A-pods B-pods and so on.
    Killer whales have shape cone shaped teeth used to rip apart their pray.
    Killer Whales do not chew their food, they shallow it whole or tear it to shreds.
    Orcas are distributed throughout the oceans of the world, but are most frequently found off Antarctica, Iceland, Norway and Pacific North America.
    They were referred to as "whale killers" by sailors who witnessed their attacks on larger cetaceans, and over time this name was changed to "killer whales." They are called this not because they harm humans but because they do sometimes kill other whales and hunt in packs or pods earning them the title “Sea Wolves”
    Killer whales are a polygamous species, and they may have multiple partners in a single season. Male Orcas becomes mature at age 13 and female Orcas at age 6 to 10 but end up mating when they are 14 to 15. There is no pattern as to what session Orcas give birth but studies show that it is most common in the winter. Calves are born at one time and in the water. It most common for delivers to be tail first and rarely head first.
    Orcas are apex predators meaning no other animals hunt them. Orcas eat Sea Birds, Squid, Sea Turtles, Octopuses, Sharks, Sea Rays and Fish and mammals such as the seal
    Unfortunately orcas are now an endangered species with an estimate of only 88 in early 2010.
    The distinctive patterns of an orca are a form of camouflage to hide their presence when in search of food
    Fun facts
    1. When swimming near the surface they stay below water for 30 seconds or less
    2.killer whales can also dive for more then 100m
    3.A killer whale breathes air through its blowhole on top of its head.
    Humans have impacted the killer whale inviorment by doing things such as:
    Before 1981 the Japanese, Soviet and Norwegian whales have taken almost 6,000 whales and hunting still goes on illegally in the Arctic. However in 1972 the U.S marine mammal protection act has made it illegal to hunt and harass theses orcas in the U.S. The endangered species act of 1973 also protects the orcas because some regions of orcas are endangered such as the K, J, and L pods of Orcas.
    Industrial pollutants are introduced to the marine environment through mining operations, agriculture, pulp mills, and other coastal industrial development.
    Household and garden pesticides can enter waterways through sewers and storm drains.
    Some pollution also enters and harms killer whales trough the food chain and become consecrated in the orcas.
    Orca watching as become popular in British Columbia and the state of Washington.
    According to the NWFSC (Northwest Fishers science center)
    The population is struggling to recover due to "influence risk factors" such as pollution and illegal hunting but they are taking steps to save the species.
