False Killer Whale

The False Killer Whale is one of the biggest dolphins species. Yes, despite the word "whale" present in its name, it is indeed a dolphin, not a whale. Its scientific name is Pseudorca Crassidens.

The False Killer Whale has a length that can reach between 5 and 6 meters long. Its weight can range from 1.4 up to 2 tons. As you can see, it is still quite a bit smaller than its close cousin, the Killer Whale.

The natural habitat of this dolphin specie is located in warm and tropical waters which it prefers contrarily to the killer whale which has no boundaries. This marine mammal also has a different menu from its cousin and less variegated as well. These dolphins food menu is mainly composed of cephalopods and big fishes.
