KILLER BITE

Wild - - DID YOU KNOW... -

Killer Whales eat all kinds of crea­tures, from fish to sea tur­tles, squid to sea birds, and even other whales. While their bite is im­pres­sive — made up of 50 cone­shaped teeth — what’s most amaz­ing is the way they hunt. Killer Whales work as a team (called a pod) to hunt larger prey. Al­though some pods are small, oth­ers can be made up of up to 40 Killer Whales. Now get this: they work silently. They hunt to­gether with­out mak­ing any noise at all so that they can hear larger prey, like whales and sharks, in the area. It’s only af­ter they’ve gone in for the kill that they start vo­cal­iz­ing to each other.
