KILLER WHALES (Orcinus orca) - Birth & Care of Young

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 found in all oceans, from Arctic and Antarctic regions to tropical seas.

Orcas - Within each pod, families form into sub-pods centered around older females, usually grandmothers or great-grandmothers. Both male and female offspring remain in close association with their mothers for life. - Center for Whale Research

Center for Whale Research - Orca Whales San Juan Island, WA - my favorite pod of orcas.

See Orcas in the wild. Mission accomplished in 2012 off the San Juan Islands off of Seattle.

See how straight and tall the wild Orcas dorsal fin is? Not flopped unnaturally over like a Sea World orca. Boycott Sea World and anything like it worldwide.
