Have you ever wondered if the are killer whales or not? Well, they are indeed one of the most interesting types of marine mammals out there. The last thing you want to do is get on the wrong side of a killer whale, because they can be very unpredictable and even ferocious. It will take years of experience and training to become good at hunting these unique creatures. But if you are brave enough and have the right kind of equipment then you can easily go out and catch one.
First, what are killer whales? They are very unique compared to other marine mammals. There are actually seven different types of whales, which are the Killer whales, the Orca (right whales), the Minke whale, the sperm whale, the Humpback whale, the Southern Right whale, the Grey whale, and the Affluent whale. While there are several more varieties of these animals, they are in general found close to the shore and spend most of their time feeding by day. They are solitary hunters and most of the time travel in schools of up to five.
Now, we all know what killer whales are, but how do they attack? Well, these creatures use a broad range of strategies for attacking their prey. These include diving-propellers, rear kicks, pikes, and trunks (these are like trunks with their sharp teeth). Also, they have a mouth that is highly evolved with rows of bony prominences lining its interior. This allows the killer whale to bite deeply into the flesh of the fish it is hunting.
Now here is something truly interesting about these remarkable marine mammals; their sperm whales are generally larger than the sperm whales! However, this difference in size is usually overshadowed by the massive jaws that these killer whales have. The average length of a sperm whale is closer to 10 feet. As mentioned above, these killers of the deep have an extremely large arsenal of weapons at their disposal. These include teeth, claws, talons, and powerful bites.
You might be asking yourself now if there is a chance that these killer whales could attack humans or other marine mammals. Well, the answer is yes. Although they are not generally aggressive, these gentle giants could, if they are threatened, attack other fish or even people.
Now, you might be wondering where these whales get all of their proteins from. Well, the short answer is that they eat almost everything. In fact, they have been known to catch sharks and eat them whole! So, whether you believe in myths about killer whales or not, I believe that these magnificent animals really do exist.
