"Killer Whale (Orca)"
The killer whale is the master of the oceans. An adult male of
up to 32 feet in length, can reach speeds of 35 miles per hour,
making it a supreme predator.
It is capable of chasing down fish, dolphins, seals
and even larger whales, at times.
Though great hunters, Orcas are extremely intelligent and show no
aggression toward humans. Throughout much of the orca's range
they have been forced to alter their diets due to the depletion of
fish and the subsequent sea mammal populations they prey on.
Perhaps it is time to seriously examine the effects our population
is having on the other sentient beings of the world.
