Kéet. Ska'ana. Max'inux. Arluq. Qaqawun. Takxukuak. Kosatka. Blackfish. Sea wolf. Orcinus orca. Killer whale. Throughout history this animal has been considered one of the most beloved and feared animals of the sea. They are the most well known among a group of cetaceans collectively called "blackfish." Other members include Melon-headed whales, pygmy killer whales, false killer whales, short-finned pilot whales, and long-finned pilot whales. This blog is run by a university student dedicated to wildlife (you can call me Emily). I am personally against keeping cetaceans in captivity, but do not let my opinion deter you from following me - I am very respectful of people's opinions.
