These photos posted by El Cajil on Facebook show just how vicious the false killer whale can be, as it leaps and dives after a mani-mahi, determined to not let it get away.
Though it’s name suggests it, the false killer whale isn’t actually related to the orca at all. Any resemblance with the killer whale is purely coincidental. It even looks similar to a porpoise at first glance.
It’s a highly efficient predator, and despite its size, has been known to go after whales and dolphins.
