Type D Orca Toy Figure
The mysterious "Sub-Antarctic" Killer Whale, also called the "Type D" Orca, is a strange type of Orca that may represent a unique isolated population of these large cetaceans, or an all new species altogether. Recent studies indicate the unique features of this type of Orca may be due to a lack of genetic diversity.
Scientific Name: Orcinus Orca currently, but may be a new species
Characteristics: Type D Orcas are known for their large, bulbous heads and small white "eyespots" behind their eyes, which sets them apart from the more familiar types of Orca. These unique traits are replicated on this Type D Orca figurine.
Size: This whale figure measures just over 6 inches in length and about 2 3/4 inches high to the tip of its dorsal fin.
The Type D Orca figure is part of the Wild Safari® Sea Life collection.
