Why is an Orca called King of the ocean?
An orca is a creature of the ocean, not the biggest but the most feared.
They belong to the family of dolphins called the oceanic dolphin family, and they are the biggest member of this family.
You can easily recognize them because they have a black and white body color and weigh a mass of 3,000 – 4,000 kg (Adult).
They also reach a speed of up to 56km/h and have a life expectancy of 10-45years when in captivity but they tend to live longer in the wild with a life expectancy of 50 – 80 years.
They can take down any creature of the ocean, including the biggest whale (blue whale). Before I continue some may ask if an Orca can take down a Great White Shark. The answer is Yes.
Orcas are called killer whales and kings of the ocean for a reason. They are apex predators and this implies that they have no natural predators in the wild.
- They assault whales by ripping out their tongues.
- Orcas move in pods (groups) and they are highly intelligent.
- The only creature on earth that can defeat an orca is Man.
- Just like penguins, they are friendly, playful, and affectionate to humans…
- They have the strongest bite force of any animal in the world. A bite force of 19,000 psi.
Now compare that with the bite force of a Nile crocodile at 5000 PSI.
Orca is a Formidable creature.
The only creature that can come close to defeating an orca is the Humpback whale…
Humpback whales have developed tactics of defending their territory from Orca assaults.
The Humpback whales form groups and use their strong and massive tail to defend themselves from Orca assaults.
If Humpback whales feel threatened, they would form a circle in which their head would face inward and their tails outward.
The Humpback whales are so big that they can also use their strong tails to render orca unconscious.
In order to defend themselves, they release feces into the water and swirl it all around with their fins.
The whales do this with the hope that swimming through a fog of excrement will repel any potential predators.
In 2016, humpback whales were spotted fighting off orcas in an attempt to save other animals from it.
Orca’s on the other hand rely on their echolocation to locate prey, they form a social group called pods, and they have acute eyesight and intelligence for hunting and defense mechanisms.
Orcas are flexible, intelligent and can easily maneuver their way in the ocean
So the humpback whale could try but might not be successful in defeating an orca.
The teamwork of the humpback whale is their best defense against orca assault.
Whales appear to be non-aggressive from a historical standpoint. Their relatives, dolphins, are known to be extremely sociable and curious towards humans, frequently demonstrating a desire to greet and meet new people.
If they are intimidated or scared, they may display aggressive behavior.
