  2. 2. INTRODUCTION This power point is going to be about Orcas and how they survive in the wild and how they care for their babies The orca’s scientific name is Councils orca. You will lean about their habitat, range, map of range, family life, life cycle, diet, and anatomy and averger body weiet, and interesting facts. .
  3. 3. MAP OF RANGE
  4. 4. HABITANT AND RANGE  Habitat: Orcas are found in shallow coastal water or deep waters depending on what they eat, their behavior or time of year. The best places to see a killer whale are in deep inshore waters, enclosed bays or between islands were particular groups have been seen. Orcas live in oceans all over the world including the great Atlantic, Pacific and the Indian Oceans. They are mostly found in the cold ice water of North America, Northern Norway, Japan and Iceland as well as waters near Antarctica.  Range: Orca lives in both shallow and deep waters. Due to their enormous range and numbers density, distributional estimates are difficult to comepare.
  5. 5. FAMILLY LIFE AND LIFE CYCLE  Orcas live in tight family groups. Mother orcas teach their babies how to hunt and kill. Normally killer whales cruise slowly in small family “groups of up to a dozen.  A Killer Whale mother gives birth to her single calf under water. The calf may emerge there head first or tail first. And as soon there born the mother whales pushes it gently toward the surface of the water it can take its first breath. At birth orca calves are about 7 feet [2m] long and weigh about 400 pounds [180kg] They have only one baby in the winter because they live to be 95 years. young Adult Baby
  6. 6. ANATONY AND AVERGER BODY WEIET  Average body size and weight: 49 feet to 56feet.
  7. 7. DIET Diet: They eat fish, little animals baleen plates, squid, mink, sharks and other whale calves’ liver. They also eat penguins, sea lion, and dolphins. Orcas hunt in the sea in a pack sometimes taking the largest whale as prey. Sometimes they attack boats or men. They also attack seabirds like cormorants, s and other marine mammals like porpoise and whales.
  8. 8. INTERESTING FACTS  Interesting fact: The orca has a powerful agile body that helps them catch their prey. The orca is 2 men tall. Orcas eat whale calves’ liver. They will eat other calves. They are bigger then a shark. They are large dolphins..
