Orca, or killer whales, are the largest members of the dolphin family. Male Orca can reach up to 30 feet in length, and their large, distinctive dorsal fins can be nearly 6 feet (two meters) tall. A large male can weigh up to 9 tons.
Orcas stravel in pods which range in size from two to about fifty whales. The average pod has between five and fiften individuals.
