The Orca, also known as the Killer Whale, is found in every one of the world’s oceans. Despite the name “Killer Whale”, it’s actually the largest member of the dolphin family!
Scientific Name: Orcinus orca
Characteristics: This Orca figure is a male, which can be inferred by its large oval pectoral fins and its extremely tall dorsal fin. This Orca toy is sculpted in a swimming position, with its tail held high and ready to propel it through the water.
Size and Color: This hand-painted Orca figurine measures 6 inches from nose to tail, and is 3 inches tall at the tip of its dorsal fin. It’s a little larger than a can of cola. Its colors are black above contrasted with white below, and features the whale’s trademark white patches just above and behind each eye. It also includes a dark gray “saddle” marking right behind its dorsal fin.
The Orca is part of the Wild Safari® Sea Life collection.
