Via; The Southern Resident Killer Whales who have passed on -
”A dead orca in an advanced state of decomposition was reported to DFO on Sunday, April 14, 2013. It was found near Carmanah Point, Vancouver Island. The sex could not be determined, and it will take DNA analysis to determine its population identity… please don’t be another Southern Resident orca :(”
Orcas seal hunting in Argentina. The orcas took 6 or 7 pups in about an hour, but they ate only 3 of them. They took the others away from the beach, encircled them, apparently used them to train the young ones in the tactics of pursuit, and then let the pups swim back to shore. Unlike the evening before, there was no pup-flipping, so perhaps this was a serious training session.
Female white Orca or a much younger Iceberg? I can’t find anything on this picture, like an article or anything, so I guess it’ll be pretty hard to find out for sure… Either way, he/she is a looker.
what a gorgeous lady ;___;
No, it’s not Iceberg as this is a recent photo.
According to Russian Orcas Facebook page (where this photo was originally posted) it’s one of the several white orcas that live around Russia’s Commander Islands and is either a female or young male as they’re not sure of the sex and it doesn’t have a name yet.
