Explore Killer Whales, Orcas, and more!

Not that fast, mummy.

Similar to the ecotypes we have in the North Pacific Ocean, known and distinct groups of killer whales are also found in the North Atlantic around Iceland, Norway and Scotland.

The killer whale (Orcinus orca), also referred to as the orca whale or orca, and less commonly as the blackfish, is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family. Killer whales are found in all oceans, from the frigid Arctic and Antarctic regions to tropical seas. Google+

Killer Whales use vocalization to communicate with each other, but each pod has it's own unique 'accent,' which makes it easy for Orcas to identify members of their own pods.
