Orca Killer Whale in Antarctic Pennisula

February 14, 2006

Orca (Killer Whale) attacking a 25 foot long Minke Whale
Happy Valentine’s Day! This morning we awoke early to the sight of a pod of 6 Orcas (Killer Whales) attacking, killing, and eating a Minke Whale here off the Antarctic Peninsula! The pod of six Killer Whales worked together to strip the 25 foot long Minke Whale of its lower ventral pleats and the blubber of the throat. The second image is actually an Orca surfacing with a piece of Minke Blubber in its mouth!
