Diet: Orcas are efficient hunters who find their prey at the surface of the water, eating fish, squid, sharks, birds, seals, sea turtles, octopi, and even other whales.
Echolocation: Like other toothed whales, orcas use echolocation, a way of sensing in which they emit high-pitched clicks and sense them as they bounce back off objects (like prey).
Swimming: Like other whales, orcas swim by moving their tail (called flukes) up and down. Fish swim by moving their tail left and right.
