Information about Killer Whale Coloring Pages Printable

Wiki source

Killer whales are the largest extant members of the dolphin family. Males typically range from 6 to 8 metres (20 to 26 ft) long and weigh in excess of 6 tonnes (5. 9 long tons; 6. 6 short tons). Females are smaller, generally ranging from 5 to 7 m (16 to 23 ft) and weighing about 3 to 4 tonnes (3. 0 to 3. 9 long tons; 3. 3 to 4. 4 short tons). The largest male killer whale on record was 9. 8 m (32 ft), weighing 10 tonnes (9. 8 long tons; 11 short tons), while the largest female was 8. 5 m (28 ft), weighing 7. 5 tonnes (7. 4 long tons; 8. 3 short tons). Calves at birth weigh about 180 kg (400 lb) and are about 2. 4 m (7. 9 ft) long. The killer whale's large size and strength make it among the fastest marine mammals, able to reach speeds in excess of 56 km/h (30 kn). The skeleton of the killer whale is of the typical delphinid structure, but more robust. Its integument, unlike that of most other dolphin species, is characterized by a well-developed dermal layer with a dense network of fascicles of collagen fibers.
