Orcas are often called wolves of the sea because they hunt in packs, cooperatively herding fish into a tight circle. They stun the corralled fish by slapping them with their tails and then eat them one by one. On average, a killer whale eats 500 lbs. of food every day. Run time 0:52.
To communicate and socialize, orcas raise their tails high and slap them down on the surface of the water, which is called lob-tailing. They also use a beautiful and complex language of clicks and whistles, which mothers teach to their offspring. Resident pods even have their own unique dialects
Mother & Son
Orcas have a close-knit family structure and most stay with their mothers throughout life. The Center for Whale Research on San Juan Island photographs the dorsal fins of each whale as a way of identifying them and keeping track of the different pods. They estimate that the matriarch of one of the families is more than 90 years old.
Spyhopping is when orcas vertically propel themselves halfway out of the water and stay there for a moment, akin to a human treading water. They do this to sneak a peek at their surroundings above the surface - most commonly for food, but also just to see how close they are to shore. No narration. Run time 0:48.
