Orca
The Orca, also called Killer Whale, with its dorsal fin, is not a true whale but belongs to the dolphin family, the largest of the family. They can reach 8 metres (26 feet) in length. Orcas can be found throughout most of the world's oceans from the Arctic to the Antarctic.

Wild Orcas do not kill humans but some goups prey on seals and smaller dolphins, giving them their "killer whale" name. Most eat fish. There is only the one species globally but five "types" have been identified based on variations in the black and white markings (especially the white "eye patch") and in dorsal fin structure.

Orcas live in pods (family-based groups) with a complex social structure and communication skills (including vocal). They can teach learned behaviours to others. They are intelligent and, controversially, are trained to perform in shows.
