Orcas Have Some Pretty Big Brains

They have the second largest brains of all marine mammals. That's pretty impressive and demands a deeply introspective review of how we treat them.

Ana,

Given the recent incident, I fear that some may take a narrow minded view of killer whales - even though we are yet to document any instances of this occurring within their natural habitat.

But if they are truly as intelligent as this article infers then they are certainly much more dynamic creatures than what I had given them credit for. Interesting!
