One of the most vicious of our modern home's predators, the Orca has also seemed to have arrived on the Ark. Like their ancestors back home, they have evolved to be large, aggressive pack-hunting predators with a solid standing on the local food chain. Even the mighty megalodon is prey for a pod of orcas. Though vicious in the hunt and in combat to other creatures, Orcas are placid against humans unless attacked. They enjoy human interaction, especially the youngsters. Though Orcas as adults are untameable, the youngsters can be befriended by offering food.
Orcas have no color regions, so they all look like the individual above.
