Orca (Killer Whale)

The black and white orca (OR kuh) is a large dolphin that is often called a "killer whale." It grows up to 30 feet long and weighs 3 to 10 tons. The orca has 40 to 48 large pointer teeth that it uses to catch and hold its prey. It eats over 100 pounds of food every day.

Orcas live and travel in family groups called pods. They are affectionate animals and are often seen touching each other. Female orcas give birth to one baby every 2 to 10 years. The baby will stay with its mother for 10 years. Orcas are very intelligent animals. They communicate with each other by making sounds.
