On this weeks video, we answer the question, what do Killer Whales sound like?
A few years ago I was interning with the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales, we would often record their sound as they communicated and hunted. These killer whales use echolocation to hunt their prey, salmon. As well as this they frequently communicate using a characteristic dialect of calls. Some calls are common in all three pods. Calls used by the Southern Resident Killer Whales are unlike the calls used by any other community of killer whales.
