Killer whales are the largest member of the dolphin family. The most conspicuous external feature of this species is its tall dorsal fin, which can be seen from a great distance.
Killer whales live in groups called pods. Sometimes the members of the pod will hunt together, surrounding large prey and forcing it into a smaller area before attacking. This hunting technique was likely not part of the original whale kind at creation since all animals were vegetarian until after the Fall of man.
