Here are 3 interesting facts about killer whales that you might not have known. These facts were brought to us by the film, Sea World. In this movie there were three killer whales that were swimming close to a boy that was diving in the ocean. They had come up on a boy that was just playing and trying to look for shrimp.
The first fact that I would like to bring up here is the fact that they are one of the only animals in the animal kingdom that has no sex. They have been studied for years and even though they do not mate, they still mate with one another. It’s like a couple. They have a lot of work to do. This is one reason that they are not as common as some of the other animals in the animal kingdom.
Another interesting fact about killer whales is that they travel in packs. They will travel for hundreds of miles each day traveling down the coastline of Australia. This is a huge amount of distance for such a small animal to cover. We will be lucky if we can get one of them to talk to us one day.
One more interesting fact about killer whales is that they don’t smell. There is a type of fish called the blackfin which lives close to these killer whales but when this fish gets close to the whale it backs away. Scientists have described the smell as like that of a dead cat.
One more interesting fact about killer whales is that they come in different color varieties. These killer whales are called either black or grey in the marine population. There are only around ten black Killer Whales in the entire world right now. One fact about killer whales that everyone should know is that they are the second fastest growing carnivore on earth. You can learn more about this interesting fact by watching the documentary “Killer Whale.” This is an amazing film that you should not miss.
Hopefully you learned a little bit about the fascinating animals of the ocean today. Killer whales are truly amazing creatures. They are a great source for information for anyone who is trying to learn more about the natural world. You can find out a lot about killer whales just by watching one of the many documentaries about them. If you want to learn more about killer whales and other great animals of the sea, I highly recommend watching “Finding Nemo.”
