False killer whales are cetacean, the third largest mammal in the ocean dolphin family. It is called a false killer whale because it shares many physical characteristics with the orca, killer whale, and is very similar in appearance. The two animals are not related in any way though.
False killer whales (psudorca crassidens) are dolphins that can approximately weigh 1500 pounds. False killer whales have small cone shaped heads with no beaks. Their flippers have a distinctive hump in the middle of the front edge. Their bodies tend to be more slender shaped than other dolphins within the same family. These dolphins travel in large groups ranging from 20 to almost a 100 individuals at a time. Their diet mainly consists of fish and cephalopods but they are known to attack smaller dolphins as well.
