That inquisitive orca is back at the surfing beach Uluwatu in Bali!
He was spotted about 2 weeks ago checking out the surfers; he made a reappearance again today.
Apparently he’s from a pod of orcas from Sri Lanka, and might have a harpoon stuck in his tail from a run-in with traditional whalers.

The right whale researchers in Maine didn’t come across any right whales on this day, but…an orca?! Here’s the story.

My orca illustration showing the orca hunting process of wave washing. This process requires multiple whales to swim close to one another, at high speeds, towards the ice floe. They then dive under the ice, creating a wave that either breaks up the ice or knocks the seal from the floe, making it easier to eat. 
This piece was done using photoshop.
