AMAZING ORCAS Orca photo Copyright ©, Bill Hutchinson, The Kenai Peninsula Eagle PresS used here with permission. Introduction
An orca whale is a marine mammal. It can weigh up to 10 tons. Orcas are also known as killer whales. The word killer whale can make you afraid to go on that swimming trip that you and your dad planned at the beach, but scientists have been studying these animals for over twenty years and there has not been one documented case of a killer whale harming a human. This web site is dedicated to orca whales and the students who want to learn more about them. So dive into tons of fun filled activities, a fun to do test, and a maze (don't forget the facts). Then after you're done you just might want to go on that swimming trip.
