  • History

    Studies of Killer Whales have revealed a number of surprising tidbits about these lethal sea mammals. Tracking studies have found that Killer Whales have a nearly worldwide range. Behavioral studies have revealed a variety of cooperative techniques, including herding fish and massed attacks on larger prey. They’ve been studied creating underwater currents to confuse targets, and they use air bubbles to screen their movements. A pod of Killer Whales has been compared to a wolf pack in terms of cooperation, but their advanced techniques might be better compared to a modern special forces unit.
