Fishy Fact No.2

Fishy Facts 2Orcas were originally called ‘whale killers’ by sailors.

They were referenced as ‘whale killers’ by sailors who witnessed their attacks on larger cetaceans and over time it was changed to ‘killer whales’. Not because they harm humans but do sometimes kill other whales, hunting them in packs and thus earning the title ‘Wolves of the Sea’.
