False killer whales (Pseudorca crassidens) make rare appearance in Sea of Cortez, at the northen end of Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park
False killer whales were named because they share feeding habits of some killer whales—notably because they also attack and kill other cetaceans.
Is rare because generally reside in the open ocean. They’re smaller than killer whales, however, measuring to about 20 feet (females to about 15 feet) and weighing to about 1,500 pounds.
