Guys, let me tell you about orcas.
Orca whales are mean motherfuckers. They cruise the oceans with only two things in mind: one, having sex, and two, eating every poor fuck they find out there that’s smaller than them. They are such badass motherfuckers that even great white motherfucking sharks don’t dare fuck with them, which in my books, places them above the sperm whale as Biggest Badass of the Ocean. And why don’t sharks bother them, you may wonder? Because orcas fucking learned that if you flip a shark over they go into a sort of coma, so now they do it intentionally so they can eat the motherfucking sharks. Not only that, but orcas have also learned how to hunt sperm whales and motherfucking sea birds.
The orca whale lives in a matriarchal pod. Every pod has unique hunting methods and whatnot, which is passed down from parent to offspring- these scary fuckers have formed civilizations. And what do they do for fun, apart from hopping around on the water’s surface and grinning like crazy mofos? They hunt for fun, going so far as to tip over ice floes and beach themselves just for the thrill of killing.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Orca whales are too damn cute and smiley looking to be heartless predators of the sea. Well, let me counter-argue with this photo:

THOSE ARE NOT THE TEETH OF A CREATURE THAT WANTS TO BE YOUR FRIEND.

#the douchebags of the sea

Is it bad that this makes me love them more???

Orca whales were my favourite animal as a kid. THEY’RE AWESOME.

For the first time in a long time, shipping traffic stopped on September 11, 2001. That pause gave whales in the oceans a break from incessant noise from ships … and scientists have just published the findings.

Right whales are the most endangered large whale in the Atlantic. There  are only about 450 of these baleen whales left. Their low population is  thought to be a product in part of multiple stressors in their  environment. Unexpectedly after 9/11, whale researchers at Boston’s New  England Aquarium discovered the first evidence of the effects of noise  pollution on the chronic stress levels of these whales. More
