Killer Whales are easy to spot with their

black and white colour­ing. These beau­ti­ful marine mam­mals weigh in be­tween four and five tonnes and reach up to eight me­tres long. You’ll find Killer Whales in all the world’s oceans, but they do tend to en­joy colder wa­ters which is why they’re of­ten found in Canada! In our wa­ters, they en­joy chow­ing down on a bunch of dif­fer­ent kinds of marine an­i­mals like squid, sea tur­tles, ot­ters, fish, sea lions, sea birds and even other whales! These marine mam­mals work to­gether to hunt for their sup­per in pods (their groups). There’s usu­ally be­tween 10 to 40 whales in one pod but some­times they’ll mix groups — but only for a lit­tle while. They re­ally like to stick to their own and each pop­u­la­tion is re­ally dif­fer­ent from each other — from how they be­have to where they like to hang out in the ocean.
