The Orca or Killer Whale is a toothed whale belonging to the dolphin family, of which it is the largest member.

Killer Whales have a diverse diet, although individual populations often specialize in particular types of prey. Some feed exclusively on fish, while others hunt marine mammals such as seals and dolphins. Killer Whales are apex predators, as there is no animal that preys on them.
